I started my career with the heavies. I crewed the C-5a and B galaxy. Spent some time on the C-141. I then crossed over to the F-16 to Moody and the 69th. I was sent to Kunsan with the 80th. I then moved to the 389th at Mountain Home. We went to Aviano and I was a Buzzard for a short time. I transitioned to the F-177 at Holloman. From there back to the Kun only I was with the Maintanance Squadron then. We maintained control over the 80th and 35th Phase operations. Finally I settled into Hill at the 4th. That was the deciding factor in my retirement.
