met my Hi guys;
I was stationed at Shaw in the 42 TRS early 59,till they disbanded or some thing then I was transfered to the 9TH
TAC. I spoke to someone a while back but can remember his
name,but he was in the same unita few years later,he knew
and worked with some of same guy I did TSGT Francis MSGT
Shire, MSGT Maddegan, MSGT Cliet and some others that worked on the flt line and in the hamger, or some of the
guys fhat went to Carolina Roller Rink ,thats where I met my wife,we have been married for 56 years .We skated till a several years ago when she became ill.but i still skated
up to a year or two. But that is another story.
The best part is that I stayed out for almost 15 years
and went back to MC Entire ANG Base and spent 22years
more. Best thing I ever did. Give me a call.I would like to hash over old times.(803)348 ~ 3538 any time bbfn

Stuck on a work detail to scrub the guano off of that very EB-66 at Shaw in 1975. Huge mess. I was a sensor system tech working on the 100 or so RF-4C's stationed there at the time and watched the evacuation of the US embassy in Vietnam in the barracks day room as Hueys airlifted the final personnel from the roof of the building and deposited them aboard a waiting carrier offshore. The UH-1's were emptied and then shoved over the side to make room for more arriving evacuation flights. We were also training Iranian pilots at Shaw AFB until the Shaw of Iran was deposed.

I was in the Hydraulic shop at Spang from 69 to 73 and worked on the 66s. The first year was rough as we only had one guy that had worked on the 66s before.
