Pretty wild to think about those 40+ year employees being recognized in 1970….when they started, there were still a generation or two (or three) of worker preceding them in history…mind blowing!

I’ve found some of these early Winchester employees to be quite interesting. Dedication, work ethic and pencil and paper engineering…no semi-conductors involved!
