What are you doing now:
Retired. I worked with computers the majority of my career as an Operator,Tele Comm Analyst, and with CAD ( Computer Aided Design). I have been retired as of 2005. I do research in my spare time on the early Southern New Jersey glass industry, where the art of blowing glass by hand began in America. I also collect and study items from the F4 Phantom II fighter aircraft. I was a mechanic on the environmental systems on this plane in SEA at Ubon RTAFB,Thailand in 1969-70. I have a functioning Ejection Seat (minus rocket) out of a Vietnam era Phantom F4D, that I am currently working on.

Reflections on A1C Scott's US Air Force Service
 
 Reflections On My Service
 
PLEASE DESCRIBE WHO OR WHAT INFLUENCED YOUR DECISION TO JOIN THE AIR FORCE?
A1C Glenn Scott - Please describe who or what influenced your decision to join the Air Force?
The Vietnam War. I joined the Air Force because I was interested in mechanics and wanted to work on aircraft. I didn't want to crawl around in a rice paddy with the Army or Marines.
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?
A1C Glenn Scott - 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?
Working on the environmental systems I.E. heating, air conditioning, pressurization, oxygen and anti-G's systems on numerous fighter and cargo planes. The aircraft I performed maintenance on were cargo- C130 Hercules, C141 Starlifter,and C135 Stratolifter. The fighter aircraft was the Phantom F4C,F4D,and F4E. AC130A Spectre Gunship and AC130A BlindBat.
IF YOU PARTICIPATED IN ANY MILITARY OPERATIONS, INCLUDING COMBAT, HUMANITARIAN AND PEACEKEEPING OPERATIONS, PLEASE DESCRIBE THOSE WHICH WERE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT TO YOU AND, IF LIFE-CHANGING, IN WHAT WAY.
I did not participate in any actual combat battles. I worked in combat support operations in South East Asia at Ubon RTAFB in Thailand in 1969-70. During the Vietnam War, I maintained the F4C,F4D, and F4E Phantom fighters, who bombed the supply routes in Laos and Vietnam. I worked on the AC130A Spectre Gunship aircraft. The AC130A gunships were also used to fire upon the Ho Chi Mihn Trail in Loas. I worked on the AC130 Blind Bat aircraft. This plane was used to fire flares over the Ho Chi Mihn trail to support the bombing operations at night.
OF ALL YOUR DUTY STATIONS OR ASSIGNMENTS, WHICH ONE DO YOU HAVE FONDEST MEMORIES OF AND WHY? WHICH ONE WAS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE?
Ubon RTAFB Thailand. A lot more action going on there with Phantoms taking off on bombing and recon missions 24/7. Also the AC130 Gunships taking off a dusk for their missions over the trail. Night life was also sweet down town in Ubol-Thani.
FROM YOUR ENTIRE SERVICE, INCLUDING COMBAT, DESCRIBE THE PERSONAL MEMORIES WHICH HAVE IMPACTED YOU MOST?
A1C Glenn Scott - From your entire service, including combat, describe the personal memories which have impacted you most?
The Ubon RTAFB in Thailand coming under attack from sappars who were trying to get onto the base to blow up some C47 aircraft they thought were Snoopy gunships, but were in actuality planes used to ferry airmen around Thailand on R&R. (See clippings of attack in photo section)
WHICH INDIVIDUAL(S) FROM YOUR TIME IN THE MILITARY STAND OUT AS HAVING THE MOST POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOU AND WHY?
Was never really impressed by anyone I worked for??
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?
A1C Glenn Scott - 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 worked with computers the majority of my career as an Operator,Tele Comm Analyst, and with CAD ( Computer Aided Design). I have been retired as of 2005. I do research in my spare time on the early Southern New Jersey Glass Industry where the art of blowing glass by hand began in American. I also collect and study items from the F4 Phantom II aircraft. I was a mechanic on the environmental systems on this plane in 1969-70. I have a functioning Ejection Seat (minus rocket) out of a Vietnam era Phantom, that I am currently working on.
WHAT MILITARY ASSOCIATIONS ARE YOU A MEMBER OF, IF ANY? WHAT SPECIFIC BENEFITS DO YOU DERIVE FROM YOUR MEMBERSHIPS?
I am a member of the Disabled American Veterans Association since 1970, with a 20 percent rating. Also a member since 1987 with the National Rifle Association to support their work on ensuring that the thugs in Washington don't trample on our Second Amendment.
IN WHAT WAYS HAS TOGETHERWESERVED.COM HELPED YOU REMEMBER YOUR MILITARY SERVICE AND THE FRIENDS YOU SERVED WITH.
I have been away from the Air Force since 1970 . By using this site, I am able to talk with airman who have served before, and after me. The site is a wealth of information.
