Galaxy Council Member of the Month


Ted Dygon – Ted Dygon has been a member of the Galaxy Community Council almost since its inception. Growing up near Chicopee Center, Ted watched Westover assigned aircraft literally fly over his house. However, in 1954 when he decided to join the military service, it was the Marines for him. While a marine Ted served a tour in Japan and Okinawa. He also participated in a mock invasion of Iwo Jima. This training exercise gave Ted a greater appreciation of what was involved in the attack. “You were up to your knees in volcanic ash” Ted said “it must have been awful”. During his tour he experienced the two extremes in assignments; first Japan and then cold weather training in preparation for a possible tour of Korea. Ted and his wife Helen raised two children. Their son Ted Jr. is a maintainer at Westover and daughter Lori is a nurse. Ted retired from Moore Drop Forge after 35 years. Working every air show and picnic, Ted enjoys the patriotic spirit displayed by the Galaxy members. It’s people like Teddy Dygon that makes the Galaxy Council such a great organization. Thanks Ted for your support.
