Yep, I worked on the A-7 in Thailand, where it flew close air support. Ugly as a mud fence, but it could carry lots of payload. The 20MM Gatling gun in that big nose could really chew up a target, and the rockets were just an added bit of bang. I was an avionics technician.

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Offutt AFB, NE (Awful AFB, OMG NE)

North Omaha Boy, who after talking with a lot of vets about the different branches of the service, joined the AF Medics. Joined the Medics, cause I was told that all of the girls were in the Medics. Purely from a 19 year old male perspective!

Met my wife while at Williams in 1982. She was AF also. Meeting/ Marrying her the best thing Uncle Sugar did for me!

Long time ago!

Happy Thanksgiving!

To Our Veterans, a Grateful Nation remembers and thanks You! 🇺🇸
