You Can Carry the Message on the Job

This AA cooperated with his progressive firm in helping fellow employees start sober living

IN A COMPANY magazine not so long ago, four men were honored in the Service Award column for having completed thirty years with the company. But for the illness of alcoholism, there would have been five.

I was fired from that company in 1941 for drunkenness. Now I'm a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, sober for the past fifteen years, and am once again with the company. No one knows for sure just how many other employees are members of AA. Neither AA nor the firm has any records on this. I know of six or seven other employees who do belong to AA, and I estimate there may be as many as fifteen to twenty.
