Auf! Auf! Auf dem Tisch und SING! Up! Up! Up on the table and SING! So there we were in Munich for Oktoberfest. We walked into the Lowenbrau tent and they were playing Glenn Miller. “In the Mood”. Quite a culture shock, not what I expected. When we finally found a table we were wedged [...]
I was the unofficial NCOIC of Pranks and Practical Jokes. As a Tsgt, folks came to me and cleared their antics with me. They were really asking how much trouble they would get into. I vetoed many and was ignored a lot. I DID NOT APPROVE 7. M-80’s will not be lit and then flushed. 34. Spiking [...]

I just finished watching almost four hours of “The Making of Topgun”. The Lucky Puppies were deployed to Zaragoza, Spain for weapons training when the movie premiered in Europe. Everyone wanted to go see it.
We lived in Germany for a few years. That sounds so cool, but if you’re in the Air Force it’s really no biggie. We were stationed at Hahn Airbase in the Hunsruck.
