    Keesler AFB, Mississippi. (too hot; let's move up north!)

    Minot AFB, North Dakota. (STILL too hot! We arrived in August, and promptly experienced 2 straight weeks of 100+ temps! All I want is summer temps in the 70s; let's try again...)

    Eielson AFB, Alaska.

    Did you know it gets over 80 degrees there in the summer, too? ;P
    I gave up (retired). ;f

    How is good old Mountain Home? I started as a crew chief in the 391st back in '92. Then I switched to the 390th just before the F-15s arrived on base. I liked the C-Models better due to the lack of bomb racks to bash my head on.;)

    Kevin--
    Mountain Home has changed quit a bit since i got here in 97. the tankers and B1's are gone, the 16s are leaving, and soon according to the BRAC listing, Mountain Home will be an all F-15 base. 2 squadrons of F-15Es, 1 F-15C, and a squadron of jets belonging to Singapore. I'm not sure what they fly. Right now the 391st's aircraft are a little better than the 390th maintenance wise. So the 391st is the place to be. i agree with you, i have hade plenty of eagle bites to my head and all the spots that really hurt. i guess we'll see if i like C models when i get to Kadena. I'm a non-vol so i only have to go for three years. NO GUNS FOR THREE YEARS! CRAP! CRAP! CRAP! I like it enough to try and come back here as a follow on.
