I was stationed at Peshawar, Pakistan 66-68 and Iraklion, Crete 68-69. Pakistan was a bad assignment (got shot at) and Crete was a great assignment (base by beach).

Wish I still had my Smith & Wesson Model 15 .38 Special! Whoever had it before me really slicked up the action! One of the best on a double-action revolver I've ever held.

RAF Mildenhall, UK, then Ramstein Germany, and then Al Udeid, Qatar.

I felt safer in Qatar than I've ever felt in Memphis or St Louis,,,although the Qataris could use some driving lessons.
