Glad you joined our group.  Please come in and introduce yourself.  Tell us what branch and for how long.  Lets support each other and those who still serve.

I want all to know I am a huge supporter of military families.  I know my family suffered while I was in.  I know they sacrificed tons for me to be able to do my job.  So I want to make sure we include family members as well

Thank you

USAF 83rd TCF, Forward Air Control Post, Wideband aka Radio Relay Repairman, also Combat Controller.  Jumped out of too many good airplanes.  Started assignment at Keesler AFB when my first assignment was cancelled (last surviving male and was assigned a hazardous duty location so they cancelled it), taught AN/TRC-97A MW deployment and maintenance. Then assigned temporarily to a small unit that was an all-forces team. Entered South Africa as an observation post monitoring Idi Amin's behavior while special forces were attempting to take him out. Then on to Davis-Monthan AFB with 83rd TCF.  Saudi for Elf One, time in Al Jubail, Dhahran, and Riyadh.  Spent lots of time in Dammam playing around, and flying out every Thursday to Bahrain to maintain the microwave hops.  Unit was decommissioned in '83 and given Presidential Outstanding Unit Award, and we were given our choice of assignments, so I picked Monte Limbara, Sardinia.  Mountaintop site in the middle of the Mediterranean, lots of mw and tropo along with AFRTS relay sites. Ended up my last assignment at Dyess AFB, Abilene, TX, doing BISS - Base Installation Security Systems.  We redesigned the WSA security systems, flightline security for B52's and the new (at that time) B1B's.

Fabulous time in the military. Trained in Fort Hood with Rangers, then at 29 Stumps with the Marines.  Then assigned temp duty on a sub-tender that is how I ended up in Sardinia, it was going on a resupply mission to La Maddalena, bouncing from there to Palau and Santo Stefanos.  If I had it all to do over again, I'd do the exact same things!  So much fun, even when we were in trenches with bullets and tear gas flying, heck of a place to learn life's lessons!!!
