CoastLine: Howie Franklin, Author of Yes Sir! Mr. President
It was April of 1976 when Howie Franklin got the call asking him to join the crew of Air Force One. He rose to Chief Steward and ultimately retired in 1994 – halfway through the first term of President Bill Clinton.
In August 2015, he published a book about his adventures. Yes Sir! Mr. President chronicles Franklin's journey as a kid on Fire Island in New York, selling drinks and carting baggage for the rich and famous all the way to serving five U.S. Presidents on Air Force One.
