They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.
3428th Student Squadron
Lowry TTC, Denver, CO
May '62 to August '65
HEY - I just did an internet search and found some pictures from 43 years ago.
I was the commander of this squadron at the time of this picture, and the logo was the result of a contest I sponsored. We had small plastic replicas we clipped to our uniforms. I also had the fence built to make the place a bit more "decorative." But, it didn't meet USAF regs, so it was torn down later.
Here is the logo in color, which I also just found.

Got a pleasant surprise today . . .
Youngest grandson (17 ) stopped by today, unannounced, with his girlfriend.
Presented me with a big chunk of my favorite dark chocolate, a big smiley balloon and a card thanking me for my service in Korea over 50 years ago.
First time anyone ever thanked for doing that. Yeah, this old guy sorta choked up.
There is true hope with our younger generation.

One of the biggest thrills of my life was riding my bike through a newly formed hole in the Berlin Wall. Here's some serious irony. I worked at an intelligence collection site, and after the fall, I rode my bike through the Wall, along the "death strip", and back through the Wall to get to work.
I do mind the repeating of mindless slogans and the refusal to countenance evidence for the opposing point of view, and especially when this is accompanied with abuse.

USN 1961-1980 Was a different time.
It's Not the destination, It's the Ride.
USMC 1970, 71, 72. "D" Company, 1st Battallion, Ninth Marine Regiment. "The Walking Dead". The name was earned before my time. Still, a proud unit with a remarkable story, where I was honored to serve.
It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
Royal Marines 3rd Commando Brigade and I was lucky- Rugby and Boxing team so guess how often I was on Fatigues?
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
