Re: Attention all flightline workers 1972 -1973 474th TFW
I was at Nellis in Phase Dock when they rushed me to Tahkli around Dec. 1, 72 to replace someone who had to leave. I was a nobody E-2 who was new the 474th OMS with it's jerk Lt. Col. whoosis. Nobody had time for a one striper. The jerk 1st sgt. Msgt whatsis at Nellis wrote me up as AWOL because the clerk who wrote the orders bugged out on leave and didn't tell anyone! I do have not had any issues other than hearing (damn Phantoms at Bentwaters)and crew chief knees. The problem with being TDY is that the VA does not see it on our DD214, so we were never there in their eyes. Of course all the jet fuel benzene, MEK, hydraulic fluid and other juicy carcinogens probably have not helped any of us. Lets not forget 0072 going kaboom 24 times. I know i am posting two years later. hopefully all are doing OK now.
