Eglin AFB, 1973-1974. Had my own room, chow was excellent,(steak & shrimp weekly) close to the ocean, worked part time off base making some extra $$$. Got to work on many different birds in the USAF inventory. Base had a nice auto shop where I did a lot of work on my car.

Last year before I retired

I was stationed on Johnston Atoll, 800 miles SW of Hawaii, from 92 to 93.

Great food, easy duty (issiing chemical waepons to a contractor for destruction), all the scuba you wanted, year round sunshine and lots of roads to run.

All that plus pay? What more could you ask for?

I retired and worked for the contractor for 7 more years!

Hard to pick which was favorite but Clark and other PI sites in the 70's and Heidelberg Germany most of the 80's as USAF assigned to a Army airfield.

I was driving for a major (army) before and in vietnam 1968-69. Great guy but he got special orders 3 mos in and I ended up leaving the 5/12 and was assighned to the crip platoon on 199th brigade for the rest of my tour. Driver of deuce and a half and RTO. That was an experience. Really liked driving for Major Fisher.

Osan AB Korea May 1984-May 1985. Went to Pope AFB from there and missed it so much I filled out a new Dream Sheet one week later. To my surprise I got orders right back to Osan Jan. 1987-Jan. 1988.

What is that old saying about the only good tour is the one your on. I had a bunch of good ones, but the best was RAF Upper Heyford from 85 - 91. Being of Scottish genes I spent alot of time seeing the country. Got to spend alot of TDY's to Germany, Scotland ( St. Andrews home of the Great sport of golf ) along with trips to Saudi, Turkey and Iraq during Desert Storm.
