In order to write about the function of governing, it helps to have some knowledge about being governed. My preparation to writing about one of the fundamental processes in government began in Kindergarten, where away from home, you were instructed in the manners of getting along with those around you. Education then moved up to secondary education (Grade School) then into High School. For me, the next step was the United States Air Force, where I was given instruction in Electronics /Communication for 36 6-day weeks at 8-hrs each day. This was followed by combat in Korea, 1951-1952. This was followed by employment at Cape Canaveral, Florida: At Cape Canaveral during the 1960's I designed test equipment and wrote procedures for Quality Control inspectors and engineers. Design Engineering Technical Writing Quality Assurance/QC System Design Quality Audits/Surveys Acceptance Documentation Package Preparation Later at the Kennedy Space Center I wrote maintenance manuals for the government (Corps of Engineers), and then, working as a Technical Writer for Grumman Aerospace on the Apollo Moon Project, I wrote procedures for astronauts for in-flight orbital operations on the LEM (Lunar Excursion Module). I will add that along the way I attended college, where, during a course in American Government, the Professor reignited a long smoldering fire that began in my high school Civics class. You can find the results by reading your copy of The Citizens Manual For Amending the United States Constitution.
