    I was at Craig, class 67F. We may have saluted in passing. It is remarkable how the world seems to shrink.

    John,
    I was in 67B, one of the last T'Bird classes.
    Did you fly the T38?

    June, 1969 to Feb. 1977

    Learned to leave everything in the duffel bag 'cause the next transfer would be coming shortly. The next thing I learned was once in combat arms units, always in combat units.

    Got stupid and asked for a transfer to Viet Nam. Got my wish and two weeks after being "in country" found out that what you read in the papers and real life are not the same. Sent back state-side two months early, "political liability", and now get comped. full medical for life.

    In '77, figuring I don't drink enough alcohol and not being able to tolerate the stupidity anymore, turned in the uniform.

    While I got to see and do alot that I would not have other wise...

    Jim:
    I did fly the T-38. We were the first class to get it. What a great experience. However, I imagine the "Lead Sled" was a very instructive aircraft.

    Lots of great sea duty and some crappy shore duty.
    Retired when they said I couldn't go to sea any more.

    Took an early retirement that was offered in my career field during some military downsizing (thank you, Bill Clinton). Crew Chief the entire time, and worked on F-4, F-16 and F-117A aircraft. Stationed at Nellis (twice), Shaw (twice), Kunsan AB, MacDill. Work for an aircraft manufacturer in Savannah now as a Technical Writer.
