Current or Favourite assignment

The 510FS, Have you ever been involved with something where everything just seemed to click? Well that what the 510th was like! Don't get me wrong, every fighter squadron I had the privledge to be assigned to was special in its own way, but the 510th just epitomized what we were trained for over the years, Cold War etc.

The people there were your adopted family. We all looked out for each other both good times and bad! It was just something really special!!

I would list the jets I crewed but there are so many over 20 years it's all a blur now!

Deployments

Every time I went TDY I tried to drink as much beer as the host nation could produce.......it never seemed to work out though!!!!
