Dave,

I spent my 2nd Wurtsmith tour during that time. Was in the 524th BMS, Flight Safety, and then the Logistics Support Squadron.

Congrats on the Rifle Team.

Bill

Sometime in 86 to 91 at Castle. Then 91 till they closed us in 92 at Carswell. You probably remember "Radar" as the head boom. My desk was in the opposite corner of the tanker side of the pit. A great location to avoid flying bottle rockets!

Who was your IP? A first name should do fine.

Maxwell was primary, but I flew w/ others as well, including Lopez. Smaby was there and he was my instructor when I went thru CCTS in '81. Not sure if Seager was there when you were, but he and I went thru UPT together. Not sure if Staley was on the bomber side then either.

The S-101 boom at Wurtsmith when I was there as a coplilot and young AC was Blessing. You've probably heard of him.

Well, where do I start? Blessing and I were at K.I. Siberia together back in the early days. As long as I live I will never forget Gunner Staley, or any of the others for that matter. As head boom, I was his boss! Lopez was on my boom many times, as was Smaby. I had the desk next to Yuke when I took Radar's slot. We had a ball together in the pit and in the air. Seager was the first bomber pilot I took over to the boom sim. After he flew that for an hour, attitudes changed. He saw first hand what a receiver pilot can do to hose over a boomer,(ride on the left side of the envelope and make an enemy for life!).

Oh man, I miss those people and days sooooooo much.

Awards Showcase

Radar School in Keesler - 72-73

Mojave Desert, Fort Irwin, Nevada Desert, Fort Hood, and Elsewhere - 74-78
A/N TPS 43E Tactical Radar deployments including the 43E maiden deployment and her initial 1000+ mile convoy.

Good 'Ole TAC and C rations. I have two brothers who were lifers in the Army, in my 4 years in TAC I drove more miles on Army trucks and ate more C rations and pitched up more tents than those two combined. And they each served two tours in 'Nam. Of course in those days TAC's definition of field conditions is tents, and no hot chow. Few times we were on the outskirts of Fort Irwin and if we want hot chow we can take a duece and a half and high tail it there. Barstow was always handy. Speaking of Barstow, we even the pleasure of staying in Yermo for a couple of nights.

Air Weather Service (now called something else). After Chanute AFB Weather Specialist school, went to Davis Monthan AFB, then 3 years with the 3rd Infantry Div, at Giebelstadt AAF W. Germany. Talk about fun, the Army didn't know what to do with us, and the Air Force forgot about us.

My favorite thing was when Army guys noticed the different patches on our BDU's, they'd come up and say "I was going to join the Air Force, but ------" (fill in the blank).
My reply: "Oh cool, I was going to join the Army, but my scores were too high"... It was cruel I know, but I always like the look on their faces.

I married a Soldier I met there, as a matter of fact. We're going on 20yrs this year. Hottest Army chick I ever saw; even better today....

Loring AFB

Had an Uncle, at the time, he was AFC Ronald Robar, who served with SAC at Loring AFB in Limestone Maine. He was an aircraft mechanic on B52's. I don't recall his service years, but he served in the cold war years and did 3 tours between there and ? A friend of his I recall was named "Huey".....Is there anyone here who recalls either of these men?

I recall being "smuggled" on base and getting a navigators seat ride between Loring and someplace in Arizona I think as a young kid. He let me sneak in for a flight. In flight, I recall him telling me to look at the wings outside the window and watching the wings "flap" up and down. Scared the crap out of me! Later on, he told me that if he'd ever been caught, he'd have been shafted!!

I also recall a massive flightline of fighter jets, fuelers and B52's on the tarmac. These are memories I recall very well. Seems that I recall him pointing out 1 or 2 "Puffs" layed over at the time. I seem to remember him showing me the guns on board. Later on, I got the chance to see them in action. Awesome!

Anyone happen to recognize these mens names??

Dave
