Gregory Polyak
Gregory Polyak Class of 1964
Air Force, 4 Years
Combat Missile Commander, Grand Fork AFB, ND all 4 years of service as a mandatory obligation due to the intense training and terrible conditions to work in. We sometimes worked 80 hours per week with a Deputy 150 feet under ground in what is best described as a Dristan Capsule. There was no contact with the outside except for military reasons. We got home at all times of the day or night for a 20 hour off duty time that also was lessoned by the drive time driving old Chevy station wagons back to base after picking up 2 other crews, sometimes 90 miles from base. In the ND snow and dark it might take 4 hours of your off time to get home. What does one do getting home at 3:30 AM? It was like solitary jail confinement. Not my bag of tea.
