Good Monday morning to you all, and I hope you are having as beautiful of a springtime as we are seeing here in West Texas. We are looking at pictures of Working Men this week, as part of our campaign to get people to do real work once again. Today's picture was taken in 1942 and shows three welders working on making a ship boiler for the Combustion Engineering Company in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I think welding would be a great career moving forward. First, being a good welder requires a lot of skill, talent, and training. Welders are needed in good times, to build new things, and in bad times to fix old things. Welders are needed in industries that make things we have to have. Lots of welders are needed in the energy industry, and in the food production (farming and ranching) industry. I believe that a good, honest welder will always be able to support his family.
