William Chastain Bio
Bill Chastain was born in Lynch, a coal mining camp in "Bloody" Harlan County, Kentucky, the son of a coal miner father and Serbian immigrant mother. Thanks to his father's decision to move from "Hardscrabble Harlan", he was raised in beautiful southwestern Pennsylvania. At age seventeen he was accepted into the United States Air Force and thrived, immediately after Basic Training was sent to Drill Instructor Academy and became the youngest DI in the Air Force.
Out of the service with no civilian skills, he took a job painting electrical panels in a Westinghouse factory back in Pennsylvvania. His boss soon realized he had a natural talent for figuring out how complex things should work, and how to fix things that didn't. He became the only non-degreed engineer in Westinghouse Industrial, and was soon responsible for computer automation of steel mills and power plants across America.
Bill had been stationed in the Pacific Northwest while in the Air Force and decided to move to Washington State where he was able to apply his skills to help improve the manufacture of lumber and paper.
When the forest products industry slowed down, he joined the Boeing Company, where he was quickly promoted to Senior Project Manager responsible for the design/build of Boeing's largest aircraft parts factories and Boeing Japan's Corporate Headquarters in Tokyo.
After retiring, Bill started an aerospace consulting company in Portland, Oregon, where, in 2008, the marvelous APeX journey began.
APeX Global Research Institute currently has organized a critical strategic GuideStar Initiative for West Africa, www.xepa.org. Many children under the age of five in remote areas of West Africa die from curable diseases simply due to the lack of adequate health care.
Untreated diseases are mutating, becoming drug resistant SuperBugs. WHO experts warn of a possible devastating global epidemic caused by untreatable Super-Bugs originating in West Africa.
XePA Mobile Clinics can slow or even reverse this deadly cycle by delivering APeX (XePA in Africa) that has already been proven effective over a ten year period against Malaria, Dengue Fever, Parasites, and even Ebola. We have been asked to come to Guinea to real-time field test this breakthrough life-saving mission. Doctors Without Borders will be invited to staff XePA mobile clinics.
Please support this critical initiative mission by clicking on the DONATE button and making a tax deductible Guidestar donation. Each $5 buys life giving meds for one child.
We are proud to announce that APeX Global Institute was
awarded the prestigious GuideStar Silver Seal of Excellence.
