As a high school kid in 72-73, I worked for Ben doing some yard work and office cleaning. As a lot of HS kids are/were, I was a bit lazy, and remember Ben providing some motivational talks to get me to do a better job! He and my dad were friends, occasional business partners, as my father sold insurance as well. In 74 when I went into the AF, Ben had come over to our house a couple weeks before I left to go to Texas for basic, and he kind of laid out what all was going to occur. I don't recall all the details all these years later, but remember him talking about his AF career.
Every now and then when I visit California and drive down Manhattan Beach Bl, I always pause to take a look at the old T Glen Office bldg, and nearly 50 years later still remember working there and of course, remember Ben. Wish you peace Ben.
