Air Force SAC Brat. Father was NCOIC JAG. Columbus AFB, MS 1958-64. Ramey AFB, PR 64-67. Ellsworth AFB, SD 67-68. Retired as MSGT/E-8.
Brother was navigator on KC-135s from late '70s until the '90s when he more or less had to find another job since they phased out navs for GPS. Retired after 30+ as COL/O-6. Did tours in AK, NC, CA, twice in the UK, TX, AL and NE. Have to find out just where he was stationed and when.
Me, I went Army.

Quote from my first day on the job: "Well these Minutemen never get used so they shouldn't break, right? This job will be cake."

B-52 aircrew, 1977-81
B-1B initial cadre, 1986-90
Bldg 500 operational tester, 1983-86, 1990-96
USSTRATCOM scientific analyst, 1996-1999

non-volunteered to the SAC/TAC transition team ... still waiting for ACC to figure it out (includes their own systems) ... still wondering why AF Global Strike Command is needed. If the Langley mafia ever learning anything, it was because the Offutt people held them down and hammered nails into their thick skulls.

Your modern Air Force: where the leaders worry more about unauthorized flights with warheads (August 2007, Minot to Barksdale) than they do about troops killed in action (Khobar Towers, June 1996 ... commander still suing to get his second star).

Carswell, Dyess, Barksdale, HQ 8th AF. Later I found myself in the everyday AF and wondered into which hole the excitement and Esprit-de-Corps had vanished? I missed the feeling that were were still fighting the last air battle/campaign of WWII/Cold War. A well trained and prepared military without a mission and adequate leadership leads to...... well look around the world today. "Mors ab Alto". Long live the BUFF. Nuff said.

22 years in SAC, first at Whiteman AFB, flying KC-97E,F, and G models. From there to McCoy AFB (now Orlando International Airport), flying KC-135A and Q models. Fearing a northern assignment, was lucky to get Ellsworth AFB. Retired in 1977. By the way, I was a boom operator, and was involved in Operation Linebacker II, scary stuff.

Amazing how many AFB's there used to be. All those bombers and tankers, tankers and bombers all day long coming and going. Thanks be to God, Boeing, and SAC for keeping us safe all those years.
