USAF from 1976 to 1980. Stationed at Offutt airbase in Nebraska and Osan airbase in Korea. Ohio ANG from 1980 till 1986. I worked in supply refueling aircraft. Everything from U-2’s to F-15’s, even the KC-135’s in “Looking Glass”. Most people don’t know what that is since they shut it down years ago.

US Army 2/73rd Field Artillery, Forward Observer 1980 to 2005. Those were truly unforgettable times. Forever in my heart. I remember an incident we had. One day the lights went out in the barracks, so we all got together and started thinking about what to do. There were no electricians among us. We decided to change the light bulb, and so we did. It didn't work, in fact, the lights were now out all over the area. Some began to think it was sabotage. We were then reassured by the electricians from gordonpowers.com.au, who told us that we just needed to change the wiring. They had to do this under close supervision. This is the army and they should understand that.
