I was the squadron clerk for one very loud Col Banda, he never did use a phone - would yell out his window to Gen Sanders - such class

Was at Beale AFB 1966 to 1968... I was 1 of the few Hawaiians based there... Started as trainee on KC-135 (tail # ???), w/SSgt. Sokovich, then as Assist. Crew Chief after a year... Enjoyed all the TDY's to Alaska, Kadena, and Utapao AFB... Missions supporting blackbird from Kadena was always special and refuel stops in Thailand was interesting, except for un-planned cargo placed on airplane to transport back to Kadena... If some buddies out there remembers, please give me a shout...

I recall being diverted to Beale in my A model due to Castle AFB being fogged in.
The fuel truck pulled up to the wrong side of the aircraft, and I tried to explain to the POL troop that this is an A model. He refused to listed, and dragged the fuel hose to the left wheel well. You should have seen his face when he shouted, Wheres the SPR? I then explained the differences between As and Qs again, now he listened.

I was stationed at Beale AFB from 1979 to 1982. 9th OMS A Flight. My aircraft was 58-0062. Did many TDY's to Mildenhall and Kadena and all over the US. The SR-71 kept us pretty busy. Greatest time of my life will never forget it
