Yes Sir! Mr. President by Howie Franklin with Mark Grady

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.    

Guest:

Howie Franklin, Author, Yes Sir! Mr. President; former Chief Steward on Air Force One; current Director, Cape Fear Regional Jetport
