Best Moment Group Commander, an O-6, insisted I sit in his overstuffed chair while he briefed me on the Group's mission. First time an O-6 gave me more than a glance.
Worst Moment Hard to say. C-130 fleet was transferred from Dyess but spare parst arrived 6 months later. Lots of cannibalization and 60-70 hr work weeks.
Chain of Command 5040th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance Group
Other Memories Auctioned off Xmas standby duty to a young bachelor for 4X credit. He didn't have to work a weekend for the next 6 months! I figured bachelors had a right to be happy on Xmas and not automatically be the fall guys for holiday shifts.
