I spent 1977 to 1981 at WPAFB. Lots of things happened there in those four years. The tanker wing had an annual event where they took spouses for a ride in a KC135. One of them augured in and it was discovered that one of the wives had the stick. That ended that nonsense. One of my friends got stuck in the US Embassy in Iran for 444 days—thanks to the fool Jimmie Carter. Jimmie Carter tried to allow Dayton to annex the base, thus securing the civilian employees’ salaries for Dayton income tax. fortunately for my civilian compatriots that failed. it was an eventful four years.
Good evening, RWC....an interesting 4 years you spent there for sure. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
