It's amazing to see how far the air force and technology has came in just 65 years. That doesn't include what ever technological wonders they probably have flying that the public won't find out about until another 10-15 years.

not sure how the rank thing works except you get a stripe for every pay grade. Uncle Bob had eight of them, so a master sgt.. we Navy guys would call him a senior chief. Burried Bob in Sierra Vista's old base cematary.. one of the few places on earth that really looks like Arlington. this was back in 86, and of course full miltiary honors.. still have a couple of the rounds that were fired. Bob flew on 29's at the end of WWII.. then stayed in Japan as part of the occupation group.. This was Dads youngest brother, and a lot of sibling "stuff" there.. Sad cause Bob was one of the most facinating people ive ever met.. like most "lifers" Bob could tell stories all night long, and while some of them might have been "embellished" a bit, they all turned out to be fact..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I was called to active duty [Army] a little over 2 years after the Sept 18, 1947 establishment date. Would you believe that there still were large numbers of USAF EM wearing their Army OD uniforms? I guess our garment industry couldn't find the correct blue material, or the Pentagon had forgotten to let contracts for the new uniforms.
