I started Feb '99 at Nellis AFB in Viper AMU as ADCC on 86-0269, the 414 CTS flagship under DCC SSgt Kirk "RED" Nelson and Pilot: Col James "ODIE" Davis. Later, I became the DCC on aircraft 91-0470. In Aug '01, I PCS'd to Kunsan AB, where I was ADCC on aircraft 89-02071 in the 35th FS PANTONS. Next, I PCS'd in Sep'02 to Misawa AB, where I was in the 14th AMU "Fightin' Samurais" as DCC on aircraft 90-0810 with ADCCs, SrA Rob Hunt and A1C Jermaine Clark, and pilot: Maj. Melissa "SHOCK" May. Next in Oct'04, I PCS'd to Cannon AFB, where I was in the 523rd Crusaders as DCC on aircraft 87-0227 with ADCC SrA Aaron Burk. I, then, went back to Kunsan AB in Feb'07, as DCC in the PANTONS on 89-2071 (again!) with SrA Jared Spaniol. Afterwards, in Mar'08, I PCS'd to Aviano AB, where I hung up the head set and picked up the clipboard and radio as Flightline Expediter. I went back to Kunsan AB in Apr '10 as Assistant Aircraft Section NCOIC in...(pause) the 35th AMU PANTONS. This brings me to my current assignment since May'11 in the 480th AMU WARHAWKS at Spangdahlem AB, Germany.

Current or Favourite assignment

It's only because I've been "blessed" like very few have. That is to be bonded to the best underdog, least-liked, often-ridiculed, commonly-mocked, least-supported, definitely not favored to win anything, but has....and generally seen as the Bad News Bears of the Pack. I will only say this to them ..."I did it three times...loved it and proud of it.
