Borowski, Charles Francis – – John Vargo e-mail 09/02/00: Chuck is doing great as a civilian in CA.
Brown, Thomas Robert–7/6/04–After making 3 deployments and doing a stint at FASWTRACENPAC, I decided to move out into the civilian sector. I took a job with Frito-Lay in New York at one of their manufacturing plants. After moving up through all the positions at the plant (line supervisor through plant manager), I decided it was time to step out into a corporate staff position. For the last 3 years I’ve been working with a group that develops new and hopefully innovated go to market strategies for Frito/Tropicana/Pepsi and Gatorade. This job has been quite interesting and very challenging.
On the family front, Lisa and I have 2 teenagers (Krisitn-17 and Kyle-15). They are great kids and into all of the normal teen activities. Since moving to NY, Lisa has been with Crowley foods where she too moved up through their HR function and is currently the VP of Human Resources and Organization Planning. Crowley was recently purchased by HP Hood out of Boston so we’re not sure what changes might be in the near future. Our goal for the last few years has been to try to get the kids through HS without relocating. Once their gone all bets are off.
