Since Oct 27, 1998
ALAS, BABYLON From this Science Fiction classic:
The classic apocalyptic novel that stunned the nation with its vivid portrayal of a small town's survival after nuclear holocaust devastates the country. Buy the book here.
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).
Communications and Information badge, Command Level
The "Freddy Kruger", with Star and Wreath
Served at the following locations:
1976-1979: NORAD, Cheyenne Mountain Complex, Colorado
1979-1982: 6th Missile Warning Squadron (PAVE PAWS), Cape Cod AFS, Massachusetts
1982-1984: Overseas to Australia for my Country! 5th Defence Satellite Communications Squadron, Woomera AS, Australia
1984-1988: Back to the Land of the Big BX! Defense Intelligence Agency, Wash D.C.
1988-1991: Defense Communications Agency (Now known as the Defense Information Systems Agency), the Pentagon (escaped in 1991!)
1991-1993: Back Overseas once more. 6917th Electronic Security Group, San Vito AS, Italy
1993-1997: (We closed San Vito, and I did such a good job closing down Comm-Computers there that they moved me north to Germany to help shut down the other ESC/AFIC bases.) 26th Intelligence Group, Ramstein AB, Germany
While at Ramstein, also spent some time here:
1997-1998: Back to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave! 42nd Communications Squadron, Maxwell AFB, Alabama
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!
Why I joined the US Air ForceReason 1: The Barracks were better
Reason 2: You can play on the bombs
Just be careful playing with bombs, or you can go from this:
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!

A sample of the Sunday Morning Talk Show lunacy we watch to gather intelligence on and ridicule about! We HOPE they all read it!:
FNS:RyanO Will try to justify the Tax bill. Expect Wallass to push back on all the liberal talking points. Rush this week has been saying the GOP wrote this like they were democratsattack the rich, provide money to low income who dont pay taxes. Hey RyanO! The drivebys still hate you. You cannot do anything to get them to go easy on you when push comes to shove. See 2008 John McCain, who was maverick and a great senator, and then became Dr Evil and arch-conservarive when he went against Obama Linda Graham has been surprisingly supportive of President Trump this week. Will this continue today?
MTP: Permanent democratic campaign manager Chuck U Todd will try to throw Tom Perez under the bus? Rush speculates that the Clintons need a fall guy to cover up the DNC takeover from 2015---Blabbermouth Schultz is gone, so is Donna Bra-sill, so it might mean Perez is OUT.
FTN: They should ask Warner if it was HIM driving that truck and running down Kids of Color in that reprehensible VA gov race ad. I noticed the fat jowl and I think it was.
TW: Now it gets interesting! Permanent Hillary Campaign Manager George SteponALLofus gets to interview Donna Bra-sill, who threw Hillary under the bus, the truck, the tank and the ship this week. What will he do? I bet he attacks, and treats her like a Republican during his interview. Maybe hell even arkancide her himself! Is Peter King going to rail against Muslims in New Yawk, or about the state income tax withholding being stopped in the Tax bill? How about
ALL of the above?
SOTU: The dumb as a box of rocks Jake-Off Toe Tapper will interview the dumbest white, liberal female politicians from California. Will Peelosey stammer, do her Deer-in-the-Headlights impression and otherwise ask what day it is? Watch and find out!
