I was there at Nellis from Nov 1971 to Jan 1975. AND, I deployied to Takhli in Sept 1972, and again in March 1973. It was two back to back six month TDY's for me. Only I wasn't on the flightline. I worked in the Avionics Field Shop A. It was cold as heck in that building, and when we went out side, it was like walking into a brick wall with the heat. The base hospital would not let the guys in our shop spend more then eight hours at a time on duty in the shop becuase of the cold temperatures inside. All the guys that worked the flightline got used to the heat, but us poor avionics filed shop Men had to put up with the cold temps all the time. It was almost hell going from the cold to the hot all the time. I was always getting colds becuase of it. Its a good thing that I had a wonderful Teelok over there to take good care of me during those difficult times while fighting the war from Takhli. Yeah,,, I was there. |
