    SAC- ewww!

    I flew on a KC-135 from Fairbanks, AK to San Antonio, TX. That was one noisy, cold, uncomfortable and long trip. The good thing was that I got to go back were the refuelers did their magic and that was COOL!

    59'-63'? I didn't know they even had planes way back then. I was born in 59'. I'm sure Lackland is not the same now as it was then.

    Another SP here. Still on active, but retrained to Combat Arms 6 yrs ago (CATM). Of course since 97, we fall under the cops anyway, so I guess since we still wear the badge and beret, I'm still a cop...

    Past bases are:

    Nellis AFB '92-97
    Osan AB '97-98
    Fairchild AFB '98-01
    Malmstrom AFB '01-04
    Elmendorf AFB '04- present
