92. Yep...

...Assistant Engineer

Junior member of "Red Horse 1".
I learned more in that 1-year with the 554th then I did in the previous 3 from training and my time with a typical CES at Grand Forks.
Had a great time, and made "PACAF Enigneering AMN of the Quarter" while there and almost earned a ride in an F4.

Someday I'd like to re-visit Osan and Song Tan Se (Sp?), for old time's sake.

Good memories from eveings at the Viking Club.

31. I'd say similar impact from my experience

I certainly did learn a lot of human nature, but I believe overall the experience made me a much kinder, more loving, and gentler person. Then again, that's just me.

Anyways, I hope that you (like all vets) are doing something special for themselves today. All I want to do is sit on my patio, drink a beer, and watch my kids run around but I'll have to see if I can actually get that to happen.
