Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Bill Scrivner


I apologize in advance for the length of this bio. I've been somewhat of a tumbleweed and did want to hit at least the high points of the last 45 years. "What a long, strange trip it's been."
After leaving Dumas I spent 1 1/2 years at TCU and, much of the time, working full time in a machine shop for income. The main thing TCU taught me was that I did not want to become a medical doctor. Then I joined the Navy with boot camp in San Diego and schools in Virginia Beach, Virginia, after which I was assigned to a ballistic missile submarine as a Navigation Electronics Technician. The crew was out of Groton, Connecticut and the boat was out of Holy Loch, Scotland. During this time I learned about computers, even though we probably wouldn't even call them computers today because they were so primitive. However I enjoyed them and asked who designed such machines and was told electrical engineers. And here I thought that engineers just drove trains and built bridges. The Navy offered to send me back to college to become an EE, so after prep school in Bainbridge, Maryland I went to the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. After 3 1/2 years and a summer at Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island (yes, I'm one of the lucky ones who got to go through both boot camp and OCS), I graduated with a BSEE and a commission. I was assigned to an old aircraft carrier as a Combat Information Center (CIC) Watch Officer. The ship was homeported in Alameda, California but was very seldom there. I was heloed aboard in the Tonkin Gulf and flew off about 3 1/2 years later on a C-2 aircraft. The carrier would usually spend 60 days at Yankee Station North (the carrier operating area just off North Vietnam and closest to China - I guess we were the most expendable) running alpha strikes and then spend a week at Subic Bay in the Philippines trying to use bubble gum and bailing wire to fix all the old ship systems. Later I became the NTDS (Naval Tactical Data System) Officer operating and maintaining an automatic tracking and identification system shared by all the ships in the force, and then became the Assistant Electrical Officer with a division of about 85 men and equipment from the Masthead Light at the top of the ship to the Pit Sword that extended below the bottom of the ship. I qualified as a Fleet Officer of the Deck and was one of the first to qualify as a Surface Warfare Officer. After Vietnam we were able to go to Hong Kong for the Queen's birthday and through the Straits of Moluccas off Singapore into the Indian Ocean (again being expendable based on the crises in the Middle East) and visited Mombasa, Kenya in Africa during Christmas. I was then assigned to a guided missile destroyer as Fire Control Officer. The ship was based at San Diego, but spent most of its time at Long Beach Naval Shipyard. Finally I was sent back to Albuquerque to FC, DNA Stockpile Control Division controlling the US nuclear weapon stockpile. When they tried to cut my shore tour short, I resigned to avoid the long, gray, and underway. I finished off my 20 years in the reserves, so now I draw retirement pay and receive the rest of the military benefits.
In Albuquerque I worked for a "professional services" company (i.e., beltway bandit) primarily in nuclear weapon effects, especially EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) for over 7 years. I primarily worked on the MX / Peacekeeper ICBM (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile) and various aircraft such as upgraded B-52's, so I spent a lot of time in Denver (Martin Marietta) and Seattle (Boeing). I was also Program Manager for operation and maintenance of the EMP facilities at Kirtland AFB. One of these facilities, Trestle, could hold a B-52 over 100 feet above the ground on a completely non-conductive structure (glued laminate wood, 6.4 million board feet, and fiberglass even for the bolts). Trestle used two Marx generator pulsers firing at 3.5 million volts each to create an electric field of 50,000 volts / meter with a 5 nanosecond rise time. My first wife, Jennie, passed away in Albuquerque. I also went back to UNM in my "spare" time and got a Masters of Management degree (the core courses from the MBA curriculum).
Then I worked at Goodyear Aerospace in Akron, Ohio as their lead EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) engineer for 3 years. EMI (interference) is what we work to prevent in the design and construction of electronic equipment. EMI is why everyone has to turn off their cell phones in hospitals and in commercial aircraft during take-off and landing. At this company I worked on torpedo guidance systems and research, the Vertical Launch ASROC missile, missile terrain-following guidance systems, and antiskid braking systems for fighter aircraft. Then I worked for Northrop B-2 Division in Pico Rivera, CA on the B-2 Stealth Bomber (the big one that looks like a flying wing) for 5 years. I actually got to climb around inside one of the test B-2's and it sure is a big airplane. After trying my hand at EMC consulting, and actually being pretty successful at it, I went to work at the PRIMES facility on Eglin AFB in Fort Walton Beach, Florida for 3 years (they caught me just coming off a six-month job during the winter in Cedar Rapids, Iowa so I was vulnerable to their wonderful weather and beaches). I got their EMC lab nationally accredited, the first Air Force lab to achieve this. Then Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so I was their Principal Engineer for EMC for 7 years. Here I worked on equipment ranging from forklifts and Coca-Cola dispensers to satellite electronics.
Finally, I have been working for Huntington Ingalls Industries (Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding until last year) for about 7 1/2 years and am now their Subject Matter Expert for E3 (Electromagnetic Environmental Effects - the new name for EMC). This company of 35,000 people builds warships for the Navy and Coast Guard primarily at Newport News, Virginia; Pascagoula, Mississippi; and New Orleans, Louisiana. We originally settled in Ocean Springs, MS just east of Biloxi. After a little over a year we had to wade out of the house in the middle of Hurricane Katrina after the water started coming in. We were in a no-flood zone so we received little insurance payment and absolutely nothing from FEMA. We used essentially all our savings to fix the house and were lucky enough to sell it, since it was one of the first houses back on the market, and move to higher ground here in Mobile, Alabama. My wife Rose passed away about a year ago, but I still consider myself to be blessed. I have an immediate family of two dogs who are the family clowns and tend to keep a smile on my face. I have two daughters and a step-daughter who continue to look out for me, as well as five grandchildren. Everything could be better but it could also be much, much worse, so I am content with my life and all I have done and experienced.
See now why I say "what a long, strange trip it's been"?
