In terms of the Forest Service, which is the higher body of the Forest Products Lab, how do you feel about having worked for or with an agency that's part of the U.S. Forest Service?

Oh I think it was great, I'm very glad that I took that job instead of taking something else that would have taken me to the state of Washington or somewhere else---or Cleveland. It was not a mistake, I enjoyed my work at the Lab and I think the Forest Service at the time was well looked upon and maybe still is. I never knew about the Forest Products Lab until I was interviewed for the job. I knew about the Forest Service, I had come across some Forest Service employees some of my times when I was out in the woods some places. I guess that pretty well summarizes it. I had good feelings about the Forest Service.
