was in the Keesler Blue Knights during the summer of
1980 to 1981. I was eventually Bugle Sgt.
While in the Blue Knights I played contra and
baritone and have some great memories of the 19th
squadron, the triangle and KAFB.
was originally there to attend 304x4 Ground Radio,
but never actually got to work in the field. I
left Keesler to go to Cape Canaveral AFS and worked
on the Space Shuttle and other rocket programs.

building. Short shorts were in style back 1980.
ended my active duty career in Albuquerque working
on Strategic Defense Initiative projects. During my
reserve career I crossed trained into security
police and attend officer training school. After a
total of 12 years with the USAF I decided to
transfer to the inactive reserves.

am still in contact with friends that I made in the
Blue Knights. We had a lot of fun playing on
the flight line, Mardi Gras and other parades.
The '32' inspection is still probably my most vivid
memory of Corps life. I still have both of my
ropes and think back to how much fun they were to
