Those who forget the mistakes in history are bound to repeat them.
Going over to serve in OPERATION SOUTHERN WATCH, just turned 21 years old, I was able to have a BIG beer, and a nice juicy steak while sitting in Spain!
I spent a total of 17 years in USAFE and loved every minute of it. I think perhaps the best assignment I had in USAFE was at RAF WEthersfield, UK when I was a member of the 819 Red HORSE squadron there. I got to travel quite extensively throughout Europe on different projects in the 3 years I was there and it was truly an experience I will never forget. The coolest project I was involved in was the installation of the first operational aircraft arresting system for the space shuttle at Moron AB in Spain.
