 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

A few years ago stepped back from the day to day operation of our family business, putting it in the hands of our youngest brother.  Spent the next six months doing crossword with mother, God rest her soul.  My proficiency level shot up to 7-0.  Got bored and there it was, right next to the puzzle "Help Wanted Golf Course"  Wow got in the car punched in the coordinance, turned on the atuopilot, and the next thing you know I was cutting grass in a beautiful setting, birds a'singing and ducking little white "in-coming" projectiles.  Asked for advice from the boss.  He replyed, you were in the service?  I said yes Air Force...He said Situational Awareness.   .... more to come....

and depending on which side of the camp you were on, you could be in Tennessee.  If memory serves me ... a red paint line running thru a mess hall showing the Kentucky/Tenn demarcation.
.... more to come....

Two week of mostly standby time, brought along five C-141s from Dover AFB and various support personnel.  Set up in large open bay barracks, got my first taste of Pinochle.  Could not get enough of it.  I was hooked.
.... more to come....
