THIS ARTICLE IS A SOUVENIR COLLECTIBLE FROM RETIREE PARADISE THANKS TO THE STATE RETIREE CHAPTER EDITOR!

As a young child born in the Great Depression of 1928, I never dreamed I would have the wonderful life we are enjoying in 2008, eighty years later. As an only child without any brother or sister to grow up with, I felt alone in the world. Joining the U. S. Army during World War II provided me with a good feeling of having brothers and sisters in the military. Reflecting on past events can help us to answer the questions Why & How We Accomplished So Much!

*****************************************************

Jack Gose has been blessed to have attended all the above National APWU Conventions as an elected Delegate from his local or State of Florida since merger in 1972. I have since adopted all the APWU members as my Brothers and Sisters everywhere I travel, sharing the history and giving away thousands of pictures recording events in the past which show the human side of our labor struggle. See you at Bally’s Resort in Las Vegas! I Love You, APWU!
