Bernie spent summers growing up on his grandfather’s 14,000-acre ranch in Eastern Montana. Leaving the ranch before entering the Army, he spent a couple of summers working in Glacier National Park. He began his airline career in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota with Northwest Airlines after being discharged. He was transferred back to Great Falls, Montana where he could be found hunting, fishing and team roping in The Shadows of Sawtooth Ridge and in the Bob Marshall Wilderness in his spare time. Transferring to Seattle, Washington he assumed a position in operations. He became familiar with flight crews and worked MAC (Military Air Charter) flights arriving and departing to Vietnam. Retiring from the airlines after 38 years, he became a staff member of the Griffin School District near Olympia, Washington three months later. He now lives overlooking Puget Sound in Lacey, Washington. Never far from his mind are memories of ranching and the beauty of Montana, and he is still wondering where those contrails in the sky are going.
