We just returned from a memorial service for one of the 6 Airmen that were KIA in Bagram just before Christmas. We towed our TT to the fam camp at Fort Sam Houston. My wife is OSI and I'm recently retired OSI. It is truly a tight family, and even though I didn't know Special Agent Michael Cinco, it felt like I lost a brother. Hats off to all of you both AD and retired. Live life and don't sweat the small stuff.

I was a 4815 (Maintenance Officer). I was in the active Army from 1973 to 1979, left and then joined the NJ Guard, from 1979 to 1983. Duty posts were Fort Hood Tx and Niblo Barracks in Korea. I was a Captain and if I stayed in the NJARG I would have made Major.

When I enlisted in the AF in 1966 they guaranteed me my choice of jobs. I scored well on the electronics portion of the test and was selected for air traffic control school. While waiting for the next class to start some general decided to empty our barracks and made everyone waiting cooks. It's funny though, we had great food in Vietnam nam, ate well. When I went to Phu cat ab I was 6'7 226lbs, I came home a year later at 6'7 170lbs. There's a lot to be said for the agent orange weight loss diet. Along with being a cook I was an agumentee guard and would help security when needed.

PMEL - Precision Measuring Equipment Lab. One of the cushier jobs in the AF - but also one of the most important also.

Kind of the same with airplanes - B52H's and KC135's are getting up in age. I read the last of B52's might last until the 2040s making them almost 100 years old.

Cushy indeed - cool in the summertime and warm in the wintertime. Just the opposite of the flight lines.

I enlisted on the delayed enlistment program and wanted a job that would transition easily to the civi world. PMEL was the 2nd longest school in the AF so how could I go wrong...? I think B1B Nav school was the only MOS longer. The 1st job the recruiter offered was Comm Antenna Repair. The class was 4 weeks (I'm sure 2 of that was how not to fall).

I met so many people from other branches and other countries through my career choice. I was sad to see the military transition the job function out to Raytheon contracts. But it did transition well!
