Reflections on A1C Brown's US Air Force Service
 
 Reflections On My Service
 
PLEASE DESCRIBE WHO OR WHAT INFLUENCED YOUR DECISION TO JOIN THE AIR FORCE.
Get away from a very abusive step father. Joining USAF is best thing I ever did!
WHETHER YOU WERE IN THE SERVICE FOR SEVERAL YEARS OR AS A CAREER, PLEASE DESCRIBE THE DIRECTION OR PATH YOU TOOK. WHAT WAS YOUR REASON FOR LEAVING?
Served 4 years active, 2 years ready active and 2 years reg reserve.Security Police/Air Police.
OF ALL YOUR DUTY STATIONS OR ASSIGNMENTS, WHICH ONE DO YOU HAVE FONDEST MEMORIES OF AND WHY? WHICH WAS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE?
911th Radar Sq., Concord VT. Part of early warning DEW line. Great people, very young and discovered life long friends!
FROM YOUR ENTIRE MILITARY SERVICE, DESCRIBE ANY MEMORIES YOU STILL REFLECT BACK ON TO THIS DAY.
Being fast tracked to promotion to A2C by site commander, based on my appearance and military baring. Commanders words.
OF ALL THE MEDALS, AWARDS, FORMAL PRESENTATIONS AND QUALIFICATION BADGES YOU RECEIVED, OR OTHER MEMORABILIA, WHICH ONE IS THE MOST MEANINGFUL TO YOU AND WHY?
Good Conduct Medal, it made me realize that as a very young man, I did my job and did not let anyone down.
WHICH INDIVIDUAL(S) FROM YOUR TIME IN THE MILITARY STAND OUT AS HAVING THE MOST POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOU AND WHY?
Two. James H. Petersen who went on to become a Doctor. We have a fifty year relationship and had great times together. We both served at the same duty stations through-out our military service. Kermit Jeffers moved to Atlanta and looked me up. We have maintained a very close relationship for almost fifty years. We visit and talk on a regular basics. He is my very best friend!
CAN YOU RECOUNT A PARTICULAR INCIDENT FROM YOUR SERVICE, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FUNNY AT THE TIME, BUT STILL MAKES YOU LAUGH?
There were so many it almost impossible to pull out one or two. Maybe the numerous times our flight Sgt. would leave town with his family and got me and a friend to stay at his house. The only rule was no girls at the house! As soon as they were out of sight, we called the girls. What we went through hiding this from Sgt. Hayslip and his family were hilarious.
WHAT PROFESSION DID YOU FOLLOW AFTER YOUR MILITARY SERVICE AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW? IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY SERVING, WHAT IS YOUR PRESENT OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY?
I got into the corporate world as a manager and traveled extensively on business. I retired as VP of Sales and Marketing. A great career and my USAF service served me well, it still does. Discharged in 1964, I have never left my house without spit shined shoes and a sharp crease in my pants. I am proud of that!
WHAT MILITARY ASSOCIATIONS ARE YOU A MEMBER OF, IF ANY? WHAT SPECIFIC BENEFITS DO YOU DERIVE FROM YOUR MEMBERSHIPS?
American Legion and USAF Together We Served. I am always looking for anyone that I served with at the 911th Radar Sq..North Concord Vt. and 22ADMS, BOMARC MISSLE Sq., Langley Field. 1960-1964. Very hard to make a connection. Unfortunately time has erased a lot of names.
IN WHAT WAYS HAS SERVING IN THE MILITARY INFLUENCED THE WAY YOU HAVE APPROACHED YOUR LIFE AND YOUR CAREER? WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST ABOUT YOUR TIME IN THE SERVICE?
I have had a strong Military bearing about me. I learned Friendship, Honor, Loyalty and to look out for each other. I have used these standards through-out my life and my career!
BASED ON YOUR OWN EXPERIENCES, WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO THOSE WHO HAVE RECENTLY JOINED THE AIR FORCE?
To realize what a great Honor it is to serve your country. All Veterans will always be your friend and the people around you now will become life long friends and/or great memories. This country does not take care of our Military troops and their families and that is a shame. Always honor your military service! You are Americas best!
IN WHAT WAYS HAS TOGETHERWESERVED.COM HELPED YOU REMEMBER YOUR MILITARY SERVICE AND THE FRIENDS YOU SERVED WITH.
A1C Randall Brown - In what ways has TogetherWeServed.com helped you remember your military service and the friends you served with.
TWS and The USAF
It has helped me maintain the Honor of having served my country which is something I will carry to my grave. I am disappointed that this site does not have more ability to get info about old duty stations and people I served with.
