Back in 1971 when I was doing an internship with the Facilities engineering group at the Alameda Naval Air Rework Facility, there were two engineers that I worked with in that group who had interesting backgrounds. One had served in the German army during WWII and had emigrated to the U.S. after the war. He was a very detailed engineer and insisted that all drawings adhere to standards of quality and clarity. The other was Japanese and had been a Kamikaze pilot waiting to fly when the war ended. He had a camera store in San Francisco across the bay in addition to his engineering job at the Navy facility. Just goes to show!
