1972 to 1983.
USAF Pararescue;
Technically I was in USAF tho outside of year 1 I never really worked for them.
Spent most of last tenish years working for an obscure DOD unit called the JPRC (Joint Personnel Recovery Center). This past winter I ran into some SEALs at Pacific Beach Shore Club in San Diego (Shore Club in PB is a Big NAVY hang) and they told me that unit - JPRC - still exists. We had good jaw and they bought the old man here a couple gin n tonics.

AKMark, Where were you at in Turkey? I was stationed at Incirlik Air Base 1979-1981 (got credit for a long tour by doing two years in Turkey). It was a good assignment. Very interesting to say the least.

Incirlik Air Base 2003-2004, was suppose to be a jumping off point for land forces into Northern Iraq during the 2nd Gulf War. Spent a year in Turkey moving our equipment from Incirlik to the border and back. Retired once my unit returned to Italy.
