Best Friends Richard Kaiser, Dennis Chapman, and Wally Zeier
Best Moment Three of us had motorcycles and rode all over central Arizona. Superstition Mountain, Canyon Lake.
Worst Moment A pickup truck turned left in front of me on my motorcycle. Went face first into his large side view mirror. Woke up in the operating room at the base hospital. Concussion, stitches, scrapes, bumps, and bruises.
Chain of Command TSgt. John Carpenter. Terrific guy. I worked in jet engine teardown and he chose me to handle a modification required on all F-5 aircraft engines. It was a great honor. I'd meet him again at Udorn R.T.A.F.B., Udorn, Thailand. He tried to steal me from the 20th S.O.S. and work for him. I couldn't do it.
Other Memories Chandler was close to Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale and Phoenix. Lots of action, besides the University of Arizona. Phoenix drag strip was nearby and we went often.
