20 Years...

OM Gosh - has it really been 20 years since I wandered into Continental Airlines to apply for a job? Wow! ..and to think that I actually only took this job waiting for construction to be done on a hospital where I was hired to start just 6 months later as a Surgical Technologist. After 6 months I was so hooked on the flight benefits I no longer wanted to leave!









This is a picture of a 15 year service pin. At 5 years you get one that is plain gold, 10 years has 2 sapphires in it, 15 years is 1 diamond and 20 years has 2 diamonds, which is what mine has. God is so good. He knew what I needed and provided it for us. I more than made up for the lower pay with all of the trips we took, vacation packages I have won and best of all, my parents also had flight benefits. That is the year they started to go to Europe every single Spring.

congratulations on this milestone! It is always wonderful when the job we took to 'get by' turns into something more significant and presents such great opportunities.

I have found a pin very similar to this one with three diamonds in it. I'd love to return it to it's owner, any ideas on how to locate them? Diane
