  • Btw, I was an ET in the USN from '79-'86. Worked at Lawrence Livermore Nat'l Lab prior to hiring on at Intel. Best job EVER but I was contract and the work wasn't too stable.

    So I still get to go “play” on ships when I need that Navy fix! LOL! My son is also getting ready to retire from the Navy here in a couple/3 years or so. I helped my niece’s husband get a job with Intel up there in Oregon last year, he really likes it. I believe he’s working in Final Test/Sort. He’s medically discharged Air Force veteran.

    I’m the only one (so far) that is really into this drone hobby, but I just consider it an extension of my flying addiction, as I am also a private pilot. But my one other love, photography, has been merged into my love of flying that I never thought possible, without having to stick my old Nikon F4S out the window of my airplane at the same time trying to fly AND compose the shot!!

    So yeah I love ALL my drones, just picked up the Mavic 3, but I started with an Air 2S then picked up a Mini 2, a Mavic Mini, a Holy Stone HS720E and most recently, a DJI/Intel Tello that I like to fly indoors because it’s 2° outside right now!! Nice talking to you Brian. Btw, I was Shift 6 (W-F Nx) mostly so I don’t think I knew Ben Guissi, at least he’s not ringing a bell.
    Maybe you might know Ben Guissi? He worked at Fab 23 in thin films as an engineering tech and installs. He and I have been working together the last 5 or 6 years. He shut down F23, worked a couple of other jobs and came back to Intel to D1. And, yes, thanks. I'm quickly getting used to the retirement life. I now have ZERO stress and frustrations.
    I read your post about working at FAB 23 in Colorado. I just retired from Intel last Friday (1/14). I worked my entire 28 1/2 years in dry etch working on plasma etchers and the last 5 installing them. I started in Santa Clara D2 and then transferred to D1 in Oregon in 2008. Glad to be on the sidelines now. Small world to see another former Intel techie. Have a good day.

    Hey Brian, yeah I went to work at Intel, first as a Field Service Engineer with Varian Semiconductor Manufacturing Associates out of Gloucester, Massachusetts after retiring from the US Navy with 22+ years there, and I spent the next decade in Ion Implant. I went from Green badge to Blue badge back in 2002. Had a fun time in Colorado Springs and I miss that FAB gang!

    Good times! Only sad part to the whole thing was when our FAB Manager, Morgan Burke, died in a motorcycle accident a few months after we closed the FAB down. He was a great guy. Its definitely a small. world! Congratulations on your Intel retirement!
