I am a military retiree, having served 22 (proud!) years in the Air Force as a communications/computer specialist. Main frame ops, comm center, LAN install, software support, and combat comms out in the field. I retired in 1998 as a Senior Master Sergeant (E-8).
Served at the following locations:
Due to Clinton's cuts to DoD funding, the Air Force decided to "outsource" support services on Maxwell/Gunter. Told I would have to move yet again, and having just purchased our Alabamian "Fortress Babylonia", I elected to retire here in Sweet Home Alabama. Today I quietly teach computer networking to computer engineers, while loudly posting at Free Republic. Free Republic is like being in the service. Fun and adventure daily!

This WILL ruin your day! Save it for the Islamofascists!
Reason 3: Our mud 'rasslers are dirtier!
Reason 4: Sometimes you can race planes versus SP cars. Try to stay in your own lane!
