Default New airman here...at sheppard for now...

Hey all its been a while since I have posted. Main reason is I went into BMT November 15th. It was a great experience. I am a reservist and will be working out of McGuire AFB. I am a police officer outside in the civilian world so I wanted to come into the AF to learn something that I can use on the outside rather than security forces which wouldn't really teach me much more than I already have been taught.
Anyway I am in tech school at Sheppard training to be a crew chief on the KC-10's. I just started class and am trying to keep up on my work so I can get the best grades I can.
I have seen a few Ls1's and Lt1's riding around the base, as well as a few mustangs. Anyone on here own any of those cars?
I will only be here until March or else I would have had my baby shipped to me.
Well I just wanted to check in and say hi.

when I went there for ammo tech school I never noticed any LSX cars but I wasn't into cars at all at the time, I hear there's a lot of vettes with straight pipes though. It isn't too bad there but all I went off base for was beef jerky and strip club.

-135 is still the best.

Except no FE, air conditioning, fancy airliner headphones, receiver capable (most of em)...eh -135 still rocks though.

im reserve and im a cop in philly so it wouldnt benefit me to switch. I assume your at travis now? We have 9 people in our class, only 2 are going to Travis. Myself and one other are the ot=nly reservists and were both goin to mcguire.

welll........lol...no they are cool...the one guy is around 25 and lived in japan before joining and the other kid is younger...deepest voice ive heard in my life haha but they are cool and have passed all the tests and seem to know what they are doing.

I have heard being a crew chief is a pretty cool job especially if your reservist, so im definetly excited. Any words of advice for me going to mcguire?

I got done my fundies class 2 weeks ago, now were doing power points on changing wheels/brakes, servicing hydraulic parts etc etc but there are no kc-10s here so its pointless when well be learning all that hands on at mcguire. We graduate friday and ill be at mcguire tuesday, i cant wait!

That base has changed a good bit...those fancy high rise were no where in sight when I went through. I don't even think PDA park still exist. I had fun there though...was just 19, now I'm 32...holly **** I'm getting old. No thanks on W. TX though...what a dump!
