Cut my teeth in the good ol' 389th, went on to Osan and now I'm going to Shaw.

Current or Favourite assignment

It was my first duty station, had a lot of good times. Basically the last days of my youthful naivete were spent there.


Alaska, and.... er vegas. What do you want, I've been in four years.

Cleaned the damned thing so well, I basically de-lubed the gear. It was the pride of the squadron until it left. May she rest in piece.(s)

My jet as DCC and a true D Model. Always broken for the most random possible reasons and has been responsible for keeping me on the line for 12 hours more times than I care to mention. A hanger queen and a real bitch. But recently she's turned a corner and flies regular code 1. Of course, now that I'm leaving.
