Recent Activity  -


I'm probably one of a small handful of Airmen to never be assigned to an Air Force Base or deploy to support Air Force units. Almost half of my career was supporting the Army on their installation and forward deployed "bases". Now retired, I'm going to get to work for our Veterans at the Temple VA. If you're in the area, please stop by and say "Howdy!" -Jason M. McClish, MSgt (Ret.), USAF
