Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Lt. Col. Ray Nash and all the other officers and enlisted personnel assigned to Bomber Operations in Wing Headquarters.

Best Moment
Promotion day and putting on my E-5 stripes while working the night shift.

Seeing the Bob Hope Christmas Show on the ledge of the Officer's Quarters and celebrating those moments with my Bomber Ops Team - we had a great time drinking and watching the ladies behind the stage "those were the memories" I'll never forget.  I got a chance to kiss Connie Stevens on the cheek.


Worst Moment
Giving up a re-enlistment assignment to work at the Pentagon.

Other Memories
The going away parties for anyone heading home or to another assignment were always fun.
