Tough choice between Misawa AB Japan and Kunia HI. I liked Misawa because I was still young, unmarried, and could do lots of stupid things and live to tell about them. The mission was great also, though I didn't think so at the time. Hawaii, because the weather was perfect...365 days a year! Oh yeah...make me get out in the middle of January and mow my grass! When I'm done, I'll grab my boogie board and head to the North Shore and cool off!

I enjoyed all of my assignments but the best had to be as an instructor at the Air Force Academy. I really enjoyed the mountains. Working with the cadets was great also. My job at Andrews, AFB was great but the area (DC) made it my worst assignment. My family and I did not like all the traffic, crime, noise, and too many people for such a small area (we were raised in the country of NC). Overall, I had a blessed career!

Basically I was CID (that is Civilian In Disguise) After returning from Vietnam I worked as a race relation investigator for a couple of years, then as a martial arts instructor for a while, then on to recruiting duty for nine years, then worked as an Integrated Logistical Support Analyst until I retired. Not one of them was a bad assignment in my mind and all were very interesting while I was serving. But none qualified me for civilan life.

Cheyanne Mountain is the coolest place to work unless you were at Area 51.

Do you know where the new Area 51 is located? I won't tell.

Yes, my best assignment by far...VAFB 1975-1978. But it's not really in Santa Barabara...Santa Barabara COUNTY. My only daughter was born there and we named her Barbara.

Come on - most assignments were not fun while you were doing them! It is only now, with the passage of time that they seemed great!

Heck, I had such a "great time" that I am now President of the USS Will Rogers Veterans Association, Inc. We are a nonprofit that runs reunions every couple of years so we can all get together and talk about the "good times" we had while punching holes in the ocean at 3 knots for 75 days at a time! Yup, 75 days UNDER water - great times! ;-)

Clearly, we made some great friendships and have some good stories!
