Our friend Jim, announced this week that he is leaving the US Antarctic Program. As my boss's boss, he's in the higher ecelon with Raytheon Polar Services but he's always been a mentor of sorts to me. He started with the program in 1983 and for most of the time has continued to be involved in some capacity or another. He's going to work in Saudi Arabia with another division of Raytheon. We'll keep in touch with him but the Antarctic Program and RPSC will definitely miss him.
