I started out at Hahn AB, Germany as a third wipe. From there I went to Vegas working at Falcon AMU, tail 293. I hated Vegas the most. Cant go anywhere without the sounds of the slots, and politics of Nellis AFB. Just hated it more than any assignment I had. I then ended up at Osan AB, Korea. big upgrade from Nellis. I had a blast there. I then went to Moody AFB, Georgia. I ended up staying there for 6 years and also had a good time. I crewed tailo 105. Went to the desert 9 times in 6 years. Definately saw the sand box as much as Georgia. I then went to Misawa AB, Japan and also had a good time. I crewed 184 there. From there I went to Cannon AFB, Mars!! That place was %$#@ up, to say the least. I never thought I'd be somewhere that was nowhere. The leadership there was on drugs. I thought Nellis was bad...Cannon was one up from Nellis. Politics everywhere. From Cannon I went back to Osan AB, Korea again. Had a better time than my first time there. I pro supered there and loved it. best job in the world. From Korea, I wanted to stay on the east coast and stay away from Shaw AFB SC, and did. Just ended up on the E model. Seymour Jophnson is my current location and its a good place. The F-15 E is a broke piece of poop all the time, but what else isnt.
