      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!

      Spent most of the first two years with C Battery, 2nd Batt., 5th Air Defense Artillery, 2nd Armored Division, Ft. Hood, Texas.

      Spent my last year with 23rd Ordinance Co., USAEUR, Heilbronn, Gemany.
      Nuclear Ordinance unit. Pretty laid back outfit really. We weren't gonna do nuthin' unless WW III broke out. It didn't.

      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
