On September 1, 1979, I was selected as a permanent member of the Air Force One flight crew. I served during the last 16 months of the Carter administration, eight years with President Reagan (19 months of which were served as his Chief Steward), and 3 1/2 years as Chief Steward for President Bush Sr. To quote President Bush Sr., "It was great to travel with the First Team".
The Presidents I was privileged to serve were ordinary folks like you and me, who did extraordinary things to be elected. Personally, I had the time of my life, fulfilling my dreams of world travels, and it truly was a privilege and pleasure to serve the Presidents aboard Air Force One. This, is that story.
