My credo
Give me money.
I sub contracted for all 3 during those projects. I dunno what exactly I built since I just got sent non descriptive parts and pieces but business was booming so I definitely made money either way. I dont work for lockheed, Northrop, GD or the government anymore so space force doesn't line my pockets unless somehow they are having local farmers build their stuff... all I work on anymore is cars, tractors, and random nonsense. Last week I built 50 titanium handlebars for kids scooters?

That one confused me but i dont turn down cash... :icon_confused:

Likely neither Lockheed, Northrop, GD or the government knew either.

I actually found out a couple things we made because being a welder I knew every other welder, machine shop etc in the area. You'd think we'd all be in competition but that's not how it works. We all specialize and sent each other work. So at some point we all ended up with partial blueprints lf the same projects (they do that thinking no one company gets too much info). One thing we discovered was for a satellite that crashed in 2009?, another was a fueling rack for a minute man missile.

The rest... :dunno:

Can make whatever your cronies want to hear but it requires funding which congress has a part of.
