Bio 

"Never Say 'NO' To ANYTHING Which Won't KILL You IMMEDIATELY. Should You Say 'NO' You May Be Missing An Adventure Of A Life Time" If You're Waiting To Make Plans For "Later", That's Your FIRST Mistake; Because ALL "Tomorrows" Are Behind You; If You Don't Take Chances, How Will You Ever Know What "SUCCESS" Is? "Can You Hear Me NOW"? Go LIVE Your Life, And Stop Pissing It Away... This One's "IT" !

Military Experiences

Jun 1961 - Jun 1965
Strategic Air Command (SAC)
Various..
My Duties Were So Varied I Was Always Working Outside Of My AFSC Except For About A Year In 61...Here's The Kicker: I Could NOT Receive Any Promotions When Working Outside Of My Stated AFSC.. As A Result, I Remained An E-3 Most Of My Career, But That Was Fine, Because I Truly Enjoyed Every 1 Of The Others I Worked In And Had A Great Time In The Process; And Higher Ranked Individuals Working For Me. If You're Confused, You Should Have Seen The Looks On THEIR Faces.. BESIDES; I Took Advantage Of EVERY EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT Afforded Me & SO Fortunate For Having Done So. Retired At 56...And I'm Still Kicking At 78 This Year (2022).. THANK YOU, USAF... You're The Ones Whom Helped Me Have A BETTER & Much More PRODUCTIVE And SUCCESSFUL Life. .. I'd Guess U.S.A.F.I. Gave Me About A MASTERS

OSAN AFB, South Korea
Hard To Describe, As I Was Stationed At OSAN.AFB, South Korea (A Well Known Far East "Party Your Ass Off") Base, Where The South Koreans Did Most Of The Work & We Had South Korean CHEFS Preparing Every One Of Our Meals. Fact Is, Over Our RESTAURANT Entry Way We Had A Sign Which Expressed The Quality Of Our Food. .. "RECOMMENDED By DUNCAN HEINS"
