    Hey, it's nice to see another former SP here. North Dakota... eeeek!

    Elmendorf was a good assignment unless an E-3A or C-5 came in then it was sentry time. I got to assist the SS when President Carter flew in too. Twas fun. I also did the Emergency Services Team. Lots of fun there too.

    Uncle wouldn't have me. Bad ears he said. Told me a rifle shot could make me go deft. I was raised with a gun in my hand and shot all my life. Go Figure.

    Agreed....but it's a hell of a thing when you get to fire back with munitions unavailable from your "friendly" gun shop.

    Currently in the United States Army Reserve. Since I'm not anywhere near retiring, I'm not at the liberty to really get into specifics.

    Yeah, I only joined the Air Guard to shoot. We went shooting every drill weekend, in the summer, M16s and .38 revolvers outdoors, in the winter, .38 revos at the Elmendorf indoor range. Empty brass wasn't too closely accounted for, so I got to take most of it home. Those were good times.

    Gave it up after two years, tho. The Alaska Guard converted from a theater mission flying C-123s under the Alaskan Air Command at Elmendorf to a global mission flying C-130s under MAC out of McChord AFB, WA. Too much Mickey Mouse chicken doo-doo to put up with from MAC. It was somewhat difficult to get a bunch of civilian weekend warriors to comply with AFR 35-10.

    I spent many hours at the Elmendorf indoor and mostly outdoor ranges. While on the EST team we practiced a lot (hostage recovery et.) at the SP building on Six Mile Lake. I haven’t been back there in many, many years.

    After I got out I did the Flat Top mountain hike once a week trying to get my time under thirty minutes. I did it but my lungs burned so good.

    35-10! You just flooded me with memories. I was always getting gigged for my hair being to long.

    FMS-OMS Ground Support
    Discharged an E-4 like most with a four year tour.
    My time was totally green and uninformed. No help from the lifers.
    Worse assignment: 15 months at Goose AB, Labrador, Canada. "Isolated tour" No leaves permitted. The AF dumping grounds for screw-ups.
    Would re-up for AFSC (gunner) on a C-130 gunship.

    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!
