 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

After serving on active duty with the Air Force for 8 years, I spent 4 years in the Michigan Army National Guard in an Infantry unit.  My experience as a Security Policeman was very beneficial when I became a Squad Leader when I served with Co. B 1/125th Infantry.

I have spent the last 20 years as a Police Officer and a Detective.

My oldest son is in the Air Force and is stationed in the UK.

My middle son is in the Army National Guard.

My youngest son is in the Army and is currently deployed.

"There are three types of leaders.  One who makes things happen, one who watches things happen, and one who wonders what happened." (unknown)

"To succeed in life, you must carry your own ruck." 

It's mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it don't matter.'  (unknown)

"If ya ain't cheatin, ya ain't tryin."  (MSgt Paul Wheeler- 55th SPS, ABGD Flight Sgt- Volant Scorpion Deployment, a very motivating leader)

 KC-135 Stratotanker Details
 


Aircraft/Missile Information
The Boeing Company's model 367-80 was the basic design for the commercial 707 passenger plane as well as the KC-135A Stratotanker. In 1954 the Air Force purchased the first 29 of its future 732-plane fleet. The first aircraft flew in August 1956 and the initial production Stratotanker was delivered to Castle Air Force Base, Calif., in June 1957. The last KC-135 was delivered to the Air Force in 1965.

Of the original KC-135A's, more than 415 have been modified with new CFM-56 engines produced by CFM-International. The re-engined tanker, designated either the KC-135R or KC-135T, can offload 50 percent more fuel, is 25 percent more fuel efficient, costs 25 percent less to operate and is 96 percent quieter than the KC-135A.
