LOL, I will have to do some digging and get back on this!
November 1971 Great Lakes NTC
I went in a month after you got out. June 1969. And then on July 16 we were marched down to a rec room on the base somewhere and watched the moon landing on TV. On Feb 14 1973 I was at Travis AFB when the first 20 POW's landed as part of Operation Homecoming.
My AFSC was Electrical Power Production Specialist so I ran the generators on the flight line for the news crews and stood right next to the cameramen as they filmed the men getting off the plane. Seeing the looks on their faces as they walked onto the runway is something I will never forget.
I’d love to have been there to see it in person! (Also would have loved to have been at the airport when Jane Fonda arrived back in the USA after her inexcusable treasonous trip to Hanoi.... but probably best I wasn’t.)
I still remember my roster number and the names of my TI’s, including the one that went crazy.
We had an enlisted guy back at Lackland with a picture of your Avatar on his shirt. The caption below said “Sleep tight tonight,
your Air Force is awake.” Thought it was funny!
Thanks for the romp down memory lane!
Squadron 3708 BMTS, flight 595
Wish I could remember our sister flight. One of their guys wound up giving “the crabs” to over half the flight. During mail call the TI would call him “crabby.”
