First base was Luke in 1982, got there before there were any 16's. Spent 4 incredible years at Hahn, 2 remotes to the Kun, and on and off at Mountain home from 1988 until I had enough. Also spent 5 years crewing F-111A's (what an experience coming from the 16!). Crewed for the last time in 1994, went to QA, then to FTD, on to the Kun as Pro Super in the 80th, then back to good old Mountain Home as Pro Super.
