Hey Trooper, Where did you do Ohio Air Guard duty? I was at Rickenbacker with the KC-135E then R Refuelers from 1990-1994. That includes the merge of the Fighter Wing. I was in the Avionics shop (Com/Nav).


I did my Guard drills at Springfield-Beckley MAP just south of Springfield Ohio, and 15 minutes north of Cedarville (where I went to College). I was in the 269th CBCS there from 1991 to 1997.

We did our two week exercises in Indiana and Michigan. I got to drive a Hummer through downtown Detroit coming back from one trip. 4 wheel indy suspension and pot holes on the Interstate made for a "fun" ride! :shock: Keeping up with the convoy and keeping in my lane was quite a challenge!

We should call you Gramps Jr. I am guessing you are in your 60's. Not even close to our most seasoned member.


My dad was in the Navy in the 60's. Both ships he served on were in the Pacific. Cargo ships. I was on a Nuke carrier in the 80's, USS Dwight D Eisenhower CVN-69.
