Pride on the Line

By Veronica O'Hara

August 2015

I am a third-generation Boeing employee. My grandparents worked here, my parents worked here, and now I work here. My daughter went to day care right here on site. To say that Boeing is part of my family is an understatement.

From the moment I started working at this company, I always felt as if I was part of something bigger than myself. I still remember the feeling of pride I had when I received my badge. Every day, I would go out and tour the factory during my lunch. I would touch every 777 airplane because that was MY plane. I would walk on the balconies that overlooked the airplanes and be in complete awe about what a magical experience it is to be a part of this build process.

To be able to say that I helped these awesome things fly is truly an honor.
