    I retired from the USAF as a MSgt in 1983, I had 25 yr active duty at the time of my retirement. I spent all of my time in uniform as an Aircraft Maintenance Tech/Supt. I taught Aircraft Maintenance for 10 yrs and was a Master Instructor. During my 25 yrs I spent 2 yrs in Japan, 3 yrs in Korea, 2 tours in VietNam, and numerous TDY's back and forth to and from Seato for a total of 9 yrs overseas. There is more but I don't want to bore anyone anymore than I have already...

  4. What Was Your Rank?

    The question did not specifiy that one had to have been in the military, but what your rank was. I served with the Pinal County Sheriff's Department, starting in 1975 as a dispatcher. I then transferred into the jail when we had several detention officers leave. I applied for reserve deputy and was accepted and attended 480 hours of academy training at Central Arizona Law Officer Training Academy (CARLOTA). I was awarded the Academic Award for an average of 95 on written tests over the two semesters, and was the second highest score on the range, with a 296 out of 300. I went through the hiring process and was assigned to patrol district 2, which was 986 square miles. Two years later, I was promoted to corporal and was line supervisor in our district. I was also a volunteer firefighter with the Arizona City Fire Dept. I had RK done on my right eye to reduce the thickness of my glasses, and the operation was less than successful, I had to resign from both the SO and the FD, and ended up in private security in California whare I was lead security supervisor on a 23-man force at a homeless shelter. I tangled with a former Marine on PCP and was left disabled permanently. I am glad to be accepted here as someone with something to contribute.

    During undergraduate university years I was in the U.S. Navy Reserves with the rating of Aviation Electronics Technician; then on to the U.S. Air Force to reach the rank of Major. And, in the airline industry I was "Captain". It's been a great ride.

    USMC 1961/64 E-1 thru E-4 (Private to Coporal)
    USAF 1965/84 E-4 thru E-7 (A1C to MSgt) All you young troops may say my E-4 rank is wrong, but they started adding stars for the rank of Sgt just before I retired.
    I go to VA too and if anyone there treated me bad I would not let it go. I would take it as far as I could. Everyone I have dealt with has treated me with respect.
