I met Harold shortly after arriving at the TWA overhaul base in 2004. What a great guy to be around! He was a hoot! He was also a good mechanic and was always willing to help you out. A lot of stories were told back in the "hooby shop". After I returned to St Louis after the base was closed, we remained in touch. It was an honor to work with him and he was a true patriot!!
