Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun! (Give 'er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!

***************************************

Here's a toast to the host
Of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send a message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast, the U.S. Air Force!

I just came into the USAFR last year. The wife desided that she wanted to re-enlist and go for officer school so I figured I may as well go back to work for uncle sam too. These days I'm in AFSOC with the 919th SFS working as a CATM instructor.

1986-2000 707as FE
2000-2005 317as LM No, What was McCoy is now MCO, Orlando International Airport.

Orlando AFB later became a Naval training center and is located on the east side of Orlando, SSE of Winter Park.

'Twas a fun place to be stationed...

Davis Monthan, Tinker

CH-3
C-130
E3A
EC-135

Twas a lot of fun and enjoyed doing things I'll probably never get to do again. Saw places and peoples of all kinds. Got a chance to grow up in a structured enviroment with just enough freedom (as opposed to the Marines) to have to be responsible.

Hat's off to you lifers, I don't think I could have done it, especially in my AFSC. Should have taken the transfer to the SP's when I had a chance. As it turned out, I don't regret a thing and will always be proud of my short but valuable time in service!

SRA for life!!!;?

Does Air Force Fire Protection put out "real" fires or just train and practice ;f ;f ;) ;)

My VFD has a really good working relationship with the local AFB & we call them out on mutual aid every now and again;f

They just got a brand spanking new 4,000gal Pierce tender & since we only have 4-8 hydrants in our AO that tender will get a great workout:cool:

Sounds like you guys had all the fun! Let's see, after Lackland and then Chanute it was off to
Beale AFB 1973 - 1981 Yep that long, but only spent about 2 years there total.
- B52G crew chief
KC135Q crew chief
SR-71 and U2 Mobility Deployment team
TDYs to Kadena, Guam, SEA twice, OSAN, Kunsan, Mildenhall, Bentwaters, Ramstein, Zaragosa, Torrejon, Athens, etc.
In Spokane WA when Mt St. Helens went up, that was fun.
Multiple trips to the sandbox in the late 70s
Hanscom AFB 81- 85
Incirlik AB 85 - 87
Hickam AFB 87 - 91
Gunter AFB 91 - 95 Retired

Spent all that time fighting to avoid DC and now that is where I am. Go figure.

65: a brief visit to Lackland
66: a not so brief visit to Biloxi Miss.
66-68: Austin Texas with a Tac Squadron
68-69: Naha Okinawa with a communication Squadron
69- now: a civilian

I joined the AF because I loved airplanes. In four years I never set foot on a military aircraft. I did get to look at a lot of them.

I worked hydraulics on C-5's for 14 years. Was the greatest learning experence in aircraft hydraulics you could ever have. I work a easy aircraft now, the KC135R, but I must say it is one of the greatest.

hydraulics-yes, the bane of c5 crews, depending where you brake. i once dumped sys3 on the hickam tarmac. 3 days on waikaki(sp) beach, yeehaa!! i haven't flown c5's for 5 years but if i remember right there are 20 or so hydraulic pumps-including the infamous RAT.
