A Quiet Janitor
William Crawford, or Bill, as he was more commonly known, was a janitor in Colorado Springs at the prestigious US Air Force Academy. Bill was always polite and mild-mannered, keeping a low profile among the young cadets who he would clean up after. There were approximately 100 cadets on the base, and Bill would sometimes get a passing hello or goodbye from them, and often nothing at all, but he went about his work quietly and diligently.
Bill went about his daily tasks without attracting much attention. He would mop the floors, wipe down surfaces and make sure the base was kept in good condition. Those around him paid little notice as to what he was doing. To them, he was part of the furniture and just blended into the background. What they didn’t know, was that Bill was keeping an astonishing secret about his past.
Inconspicuous and Hard-Working
Bill was dedicated to his job as a janitor at the US Air Force Academy base, and although it was not a glamorous job, he worked hard to keep the place in top condition. He was very good at his job and as a result, would just go about his work unassumingly. There was always lots of activity on the base, and Bill was just one small part of that, blending into the background.
As the years went by, the cadets who passed through the academy paid little or no attention to this unassuming character. They had no idea of the extraordinary events of Mr Crawford’s life. This was not something he spoke about to the young cadets, but his personal life and the secrets of his past were soon to become known to those who had previously ignored him.
