Other Comments

Comments I was a seasonal USDA - USFS GS-3 forestry technician lookout from July 6, 1976 to late August, 1976. <br /> <br />I convinced the District FMO (Dave Hubert) to let me take the position on July 4th, 1976 after another seasonal employee, his wife and newborn baby found it difficult to live there. I was taken down early due to the lack of fire weather.
