Did he enjoy the weather down there?

 

I was at Lackland from mid-August to end of September 1980....felt like I was melting every day.

We're 5 hrs east on I10 so he's pretty use to it. Besides we have had early cold fronts. Leaving Lackland heading for Sheppard.

Just had to add this picture. Absolute nerves of steel!

Took my daughter to Smyrna TN Airport to see the T'Birds. It was a life altering decision! I will never see a military aircraft again without giving thanks! My daughter went out and bought a poster for her wall. I think she feels the same way! She's ever hung up a huge 101st Airborne Flag in her goat feeding barn. I'm proud to have patriotic kids!

Just found out that the Blue Angels are returning to Smyrna TN AFB in Spring of 2023. Last time they were here the show was cancelled due to the loss of Captain Jeff Kuss USMC who tragically died during a practice session when he came up short on a loop and hit the ground. God Bless Jeff and all you other vets that were willing to sacrifice all for me and mine. That is an gift I can never repay!

 

Can't wait to get my tickets!

A little over 20 years Air Force, will likely retire in 4. This is my last duty station out of 9, and it's miserable Minot... we'll see if I can hack it until 2026 haha.

I actually requested Minot when I went in - along with other northern-tier bases.

 

They stuck me in Omaha for my 4 years - I've been 'out' for almost 39 years.

I got here in September and loved it until December. I'm no stranger to cold, and I love winter, but this is just crazy. I think everywhere in the country is warmer than we are right now. Even Fairbanks, AK. 

 

Fishing here is great when the water is open though. And the fish aren't too heavily pressured (besides walleye that is). 

 

I've known a lot of people who have been stationed at Offutt (weather wing is there), and they all seemed to like it.

SAC was in it's hey-day when I was there...and I worked in the HQ building where Generals were a dime-a-dozen...your right arm got a workout just going from your duty area to the exit.
