As we learn of the retirement of Dr. John LaBrecque, Lead, Earth Surface and Interior Focus Area at NASA Headquarters, we want to extend our warmest thanks and wishes for a relaxing (and exciting) retirement. John has been a major NASA force in supporting, encouraging, advising, critiquing, and funding QuakeFinder over the last 10+ years. When many in the community scoffed at electromagnetic monitoring of earthquake processes, John saw a raw, untapped potential there, and did something about it. For his willingness to listen and to explore with us, and for his general positive attitude and warm, friendly demeanor, we applaud your work and sincerely thank you for your service to the country. The best to you and your family in retirement from Celeste Ford, Tom Bleier and the entire staff at QuakeFinder.
