Happy 60th Birthday to the United States Air Force.
I may only have fixed avionics systems when I was in, but it's still 4 of the best years of my life. I'd do it all over again if need be. The general staff finally added extra training to Basic, reflecting the change in battlefield tactics by our enemies. I remember most of the junior enlisted asking why we didn't have more base ground defense training, why we didn't have more range time. I also remember that being ignored as it wasn't a mission priority. I'm thankful that attitude has changed. Carry on, Airmen, and serve our nation proudly.
