1968 TET Offensive,3 Special Operations to Phu Cat AB RVN
I first set foot in USAFE as an A1C in 1987. My first duty assignment was the 7401 MUNSS, Rimini Italy. I lived in Italy from 1987 - 1992. From there I PCSed to Ramstein Germany and worked at the Elite Guard for the HQ USAFE staff. The call for instructors came out in 1994 and I joined the instructor staff at Kapaun AS, Germany in 1994. I worked there until 1997 when I returned to the states. After a 365 deployment I returned to HQ USAFE in 2006 as the HQ USAFE Superintendent Ground Safety. We stayed here until 2009. It was a short trip to the states as teh AF promoted me to CMSgt and sent me right back to HQ USAFE as the Funtional Manager for the USAFE Safety career field. We arrived in 2012 and will be here until...
