I came out of tech school with an assignment to 388th phase dock. I spent about 3 1/2 years there all in phase then i got an assignment to the 35th FS at Kunsan AB, Korea. This was by far the best assignment i've had so far....man did i rage with some good people. I got a follow on to Beale AFB...boo sauce. I spent about a year there before i got an assignment back to phase at Hill (luckily before i got re-coded to U-2s).
I was deployed to Bagram with the 34th FS from January-June 2010
Man this jet sucked!! It was down for like 3 months with weapons problems (SMS). I ripped the left LEF off so many times that i literally lost count. They replaced the entire wiring harness in the left LEF thinking that was the problem...nope that def was not it. It turned out to be a CB that was pushing out to much voltage. After that she flew like a champ other than the occasional code 2. She flew like such crap when i was first on her i ended up nicknaming her the Dirty Deuce.
