510th Fighter Squadron "Buzzards" , 1998 - 2000
This was the best time of my AF career! I crewed the best jet in AF inventory and had an awesome DCC. Aviano was the best base in USAF and I got to meet the President following Operation Allied Force. I could not have asked for a better aircraft, unit, or supervisor. The work was tough and never-ending, but very rewarding!
