I started my crewing at Torrejon AB, Spain, went to 308 TFS Homestead AFB, FL in 1990 and had Herricane Andrew move me to Moody AFB, GA in 1992. Worked in the 308th until we merged with the 68 FS. In 1995 I took a break while working TA at Osan AB, ROK. Then I went to Spangdahlem AB, Germany for 7 years. Had the time of my life there. Unfortunately, that was the end of my F-16 crewing. I went to Holloman AFB, NM to work with the F-117. I retired out of there in 2005 after 22 yrs. I now work for Goodrich Aerostructures as an overhaul Mechanic on wide body aircraft thrust reversers. In the USAF my new job would be considerd sheetmetal/machine shop.
