Recent Activity  -


I was one of the first members of what is now known as the 160th SOAR. Worked as a Flight Engineer on a modified Special Operations CH47-C and D Chinook. Only made one flight on the company's first "D" model from Ft Campbell, to Corpus Christi Army Depot, for modifications. My 1st Sgt offered me the FE position on it, if I re-enlisted. Hardest decision of my life.
