orphans.jpg (21788 bytes)DIPEC "Orphans" refers to those who left Memphis to come to the Defense General Supply Center beginning in 1992.  The first group totaled 50.   I was the last one to move in late 1994, at which time only about 20 remained.  I have not regretted moving to Virginia.  I had always considered some sort of mid-career move, I just expected to choose where.
