What are you doing now: Retired. I worked with computers the majority of my career as an Operator,Tele Comm Analyst, and with CAD ( Computer Aided Design). I have been retired as of 2005. I do research in my spare time on the early Southern New Jersey glass industry, where the art of blowing glass by hand began in America. I also collect and study items from the F4 Phantom II fighter aircraft. I was a mechanic on the environmental systems on this plane in SEA at Ubon RTAFB,Thailand in 1969-70. I have a functioning Ejection Seat (minus rocket) out of a Vietnam era Phantom F4D, that I am currently working on.
Chain of Command HQ 3720 Basic Military School USAF ATC Lackland AFB Texas 78236 Squadron 3711 Flight 933
Other Memories I was in Squadron 3711 Flight 933 which took training from 7 May 66 to 7 June 66. I got this info from a copy of my orders that sent me from basic training to Mech Access training at Chanute AFB in Illinois.
At Basic Training at Lackland AFB they gave us the option of pulling KP or being guiene pigs for the day. We all chose the later and they marched us down to the dispensary where they told us to take a pill then sit around for a few hours reading magazines. They then took blood from us for testing. They told us they were testing a new gout pill. I still have the numbered tag they made us wear. Maybe they gave a placebo to a few testees. Who really knows what the Air Force was testing?
