About The Author
G.J. “George” Reed worked for 44 years in the nuclear power field from the United States military naval nuclear program (which included submarine duty) to the country’s commercial nuclear power industry. Although love of music diverted some of his time throughout his life, nuclear power benefitted by his involvement – such as his response efforts during the Three Mile Island nuclear plant accident. Over his career, he held numerous positions of responsibility in overseeing plant engineering, maintenance and operations, was a member of several professional organizations, and served on various committees in support of standards development and utility performance improvement. He and his wife Terrie have been married for over 49 years and have two children, George II and Jessica; which have blossomed to six grandchildren, Emma, Clara, George III, Arielle, Sierra and Samantha, and one great-grandchild, Ella. He retired in 2017, giving him leeway to do genealogical research, work on writing books, and to finally enjoy some time with his family and friends.
