Back in the Day: Riding it out with the Amtrak Brothers

On Sunday, November 21st of this year, I gathered with a group, The Amtrak Brothers, to renew a relationship that goes back to the 80s and 90s. I had not seen many of those gathered for more than thirty years; a period back in the day. The Amtrak Brothers, you ask?

The Amtrak Brothers held titles such as Senior Producer for NBC’s Dateline, District Director of EEOC, Public Relations Manager for Verizon Wireless Corporation, Vice President for GMAC and Human Resources Executive for Avon Products.
