Thanks, Bob.... I wouldn't want to change a thing. Priceless in many ways. It's amazing how things change over time. Things are soooo different now.
I started off being stationed in SOCAL as MCAS Tustin. I worked CH-46 and CH-53 Helos for my first 7 years. I then became an Instructor for 3 years at MCAS Cherry Point, NC ( Havelock, NC)... LOVED teaching! As an Instructor, I took a BIG liking to the armament equipment on the AV-8B Harrier and requested a transfer to MCAS Yuma, AZ for the next 4 years.
I then moved to 29 Palms, CA .... wow... should have re-thought that, but it was only 3 years. My last duty station was MCAS Miramar, San Diego, CA where I worked on F/A-18's....
I have had many deployments in my time... some good... some bad. Do I miss it? Sometimes.........
