Landed at Homestead AFB for my very first assignment. This of course was after basic at Lackland, Training at Sheppard, and FTD at Nellis. Time well spent at Homestead, met a lot of great people and it was an awesome place to be. TDY's were great too. Got orders to "The Kun" Kunsan AB a while afterward. Just being in a different country was cool! But the new friends I made there, and the old ones who also came from Homestead, made it even better. The last TDY was to the P.I (Clark) right before the volcano (Mt. Pinatubo) blew.


"Red Flag", "Maple Flag" (Cold Lake, Ca.)and a few other deployments.
