    Will miss his reporting but that is a great job he will be taking.
    I worked for CSC for a few years and Pratt and Whitney was one of their customers. I have heard of that firm.

    So part of your new job will be to explain why Pratt & Whitney vends out the making of high tech jet engine parts for the Joint Strike Fighter to country’s like Turkey even with what is going on there. Best of Luck.
