Linguist and intelligence analyst joins Valley Forge board.

Valley Forge Composite Technologies : 17 April, 2008  (Company News)
Ability to translate and understand complex technical articles brings critical skill to Valley Forge Board of Directors.
Valley Forge Composite Technologies has announced the appointment of Richard Relac to its Board of Directors.

'Mr Relac brings with him over 30 years of service on the Federal level, specialising in areas such as nuclear armament and proliferation, advanced weapons and technology. With the addition of Mr Relac to Valley Forge's Board of Directors we are also gaining a master linguist and translator, especially skilled in the translation of complex technical articles, which bodes well for Valley Forge due to the necessity our company faces translating just such documents." said Louis Brothers, Chief Executive Officer and President of Valley Forge Composite Technologies.

Mr Relac was trained in German as an enlisted member of the US Army, and served as a military linguist and intelligence collector in West Berlin in the early 1960's. After military service, Mr Relac earned a BA in Russian, with additional courses in French, at the George Washington University in Washington, DC.

While still an undergraduate at GWU, Mr Relac worked as an editor and translator for a publisher of science journals in Washington, and become the staff translator for the US Naval Research Laboratory from 1967 to 1974. Working directly with Navy scientists, he translated technical articles and papers from Russian, German and French in various aspects of the physical sciences such as fire suppression, laser development, metallurgy, nuclear power, oceanography, sea-floor geology, solar physics and underwater acoustics.

After a 9-year break to work in private business, Mr Relac returned to Federal service in 1983 with an agency of the Department of Defence, where he became an intelligence analyst and reporter, a writer and editor of daily intelligence summaries for US officials, and eventually a senior reports editor. He worked in areas such as nuclear armament and proliferation, advanced weapons and technology, political unrest and instabilities, armed insurgencies and regional conflicts, and international trafficking in weapons and other contraband. He retired with almost 30 years of Federal service.

In addition to his Federal career, Mr Relac also has more than 10 years of private-sector experience including business management and ownership.
