Reagan remembered ...
One of the interesting facts about President Ronald W. Reagan is that he is one of SDDC's own. Prior to World War II, he was in the Army Reserve and volunteered for overseas service after Pearl Harbor. He was turned down because of his eyesight but continued to serve in the Reserve. He was assigned to make training films for the Army and worked for the Office of the Quartermaster General during the War. He eventually retired with the rank of captain.
The Office of the Quartermaster General was later merged into SDDC's predecessor. So, Ron Reagan worked for SDDC. When he was elected President, the November 1980 MTMC Expediter ran an article documenting this under a headline that essentially said "Local Boy Makes Good."
