I joined the USAF after the Sept 11 attacks on the United States. Got my first assignment at Luke AFB, AZ, then in 2007, I was destined to visit Osan AB. From there I went to Shaw AFB (gay gay gay!!!). While I was at Shaw, I had the distinct opportunity to deploy to Balad. What a wonderful place that was compared to Shaw. Soon after I got back state-side, my enlistment ended. I decided to be a nonner for a while in the USAF Reserves at Charleston AFB, SC as an NDI weenie. I did that for about a year and now I find myself in the United Arab Emarites crewing F-16s again. Something I certainly didn't see myself doing, but I guess it pays the bills.
