Retired Navy. Most of it in the A-6 Intruder, with a tour in A-7s and a tour in the T-2C.
Deployed aboard USS Independence, USS Ranger, USS Kitty Hawk, USS Nimitz and the shakedown on USS George Washington.
Got this job as a result of being laid off last year at Hawker Beechcraft in Wichita, Kansas.
Got to attend the advanced course at Hill AFB for three weeks in November of 2011. TSGT Soto was outstanding.
