I started my career in the A-10, was assigned to Myrtle Beach AFB, SC in Jan '90. Eight months later we show up at King Fahd Intl airport Saudi and were 2nd unit in country. Sat for the entire build up and practiced high and low angle strafe and AGM-65 employment on desert camels for 5 months (simulated, not real!!!!!!!!) War kicked off, we kick ass!

Got home a month after the war and enjoyed Myrtle Beach for a year then they shut it down. Went to Spangdahlem AB in the Viper and flew it for 11 years. Retired up here at Sheppard AFB instructing newb NATO fighter pilots in the T/AT-38 A/C and now am a simulator instructor in the T-38 here at Sheppard.

The Crew Chiefs were/are the real heros! Those guys are the ones on the line keeping the jets flying and keeping us alive! 24/7 in all weather, dealing with a bunch of spoiled whiny ass pilots.......though, i was not one of them but i saw it first hand.

Kudos to the OP for the work he had to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
