Shortly after Travis began working here at China Lake, he and I traveled to Ft. Walton Beach, FL for a management review of the Tactical Combat Training System program of which his project was one of the key subsystems. It happened to coincide with spring break and the hotel was filled with college students. I was staying at one end of the complex and Travis was at the other. At breakfast the next morning I asked how he had slept and he said "well there were kids running up and down the hall all night long and then one of them pulled the fire alarm right outside my door". In typical Travis fashion, he not only found it amusing but he was interactive and alert during the entire lengthy meeting. I miss him very much.
