My dad had JUST retired when all this happened. His buddies would call him for advice and he'd tell them, go back to work! Men daddy had worked with for years, even some who were transferred with him from the New Orleans center to the, then, new airport in Houston, were out of their jobs!
Daddy had begrudgingly put the PATCO sticker on his car because he felt he had no choice. I think his first act as a retired person was to scrape it off.

Your father is (or was) a class guy. He knew the political winds and probably saved a lot of REALLY GOOD careers and also helped keep the guys much safer (both by him working through his career and by telling others to keep working when their union was telling them they would roll Reagan).
