I worked in the Law Department for a while at the Company I was employed with, and I also had a security clearance from the Government, because I dealt with aerospace companies. The unusual thing was that I would never have known I was being checked if my neighbor hadn't told me that all the people on our street had been contacted about me and my family. She asked me "what on earth are you involved in?" That has been a puzzle to me for years, because it was just a job to me, and I knew you didn't talk about what you were doing. I passed whatever test they were giving, I guess, because I did that job for years. They probably just figured that I was too young to be a problem! Real life is stranger than fiction sometimes!
