From Watermelon Inspector to the White House

Born in rural Georgia in 1929, Henry Spencer Faircloth’s distinguished 24-year career in the United States Air Force would take him a long way from his roots working as a soda jerk in his dad’s drugstore. 

Working several jobs, including watermelon inspector, to put himself through college, Spencer enlisted in the USAF as a Basic Airman in 1950. After completing OCS, he was commissioned as an officer and began a career that would include post-war rebuilding efforts in Europe, training airmen on two continents to help win the Space Race and writing letters for Presidents Johnson and Nixon. Faircloth’s distinguished military career would culminate in a Presidential appointment as Executive Director of President Nixon’s Jobs For Veterans Committee.

Along the way, Spencer married the woman of his dreams, Mary, who would be his best buddy and boon companion for 52 years.

“From Watermelon Inspector to the White House is a ticket on a time machine with stops at many of the most important moments of the 20th Century … and a fresh, first-hand perspective on the people and events that shaped the American Century.”  Beacon Reviews
