Scott Montgomery enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1973, coming from a family steeped in naval service. During three years on aircraft carriers, SCOTT he trained mechanics on how to main- tain F-4 Phantom and F-14 Tomcat jet fighters before going to engineering school, interning at McDonnell Douglas and working for Hughes Space and Communications, both Boeing heritage MONTGOMERY companies. He now is an electrical engineering manager for Boeing Defense, Space & Security in Huntington Beach, Calif. Being a veteran helps Montgomery interact with the military customer, he said, but that’s not the most valuable thing he learned while he served. “The biggest thing the Navy taught me is you might be in a situation where there’s no one to ask, so you need to make a decision,” he said. “You train yourself for success that way.” 40 BOEING FRONTIERS / NOVEMBER 2012
