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 [...]
We were reminded to not pull people off of weekend duty to play.
Verbatum from F-4 Phantom Memories. I couldn’t say it any better.
It was the Best of Times and it was the Worst of Times. The men and women I served with in the 313th TFS/AMU were and ARE the finest people I’ve ever met. Here is evidence that they are STILL awesome. Yes this isn’t everyone. Add your awesome picture.
Have you ever been to Oktoberfest? I went to Oktoberfest in 1989. In Munich. Germany. Beat that!
Came across this just shy of Halloween. However while stationed at Hahn AB and living near Morbach, I was at more than one cocktail party where this was discussed.

On this Memorial Day I would like to point out that we lost friends before it was on CNN.
Ever get to fly in an F-16 fighter? I have. Many of my friends have. Sometimes I forget that everyone doesn’t get to do this. Savannah Guthrie of the Today Show got a ride.

Have you ever read “Skippy’s List”? Also known as “213 Things that Skippy is no Longer Allowed to do in the Army”. Not to be out done, I began “Chippie’s List” a while back. 111 things (and counting) that we did in the 313th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, Hahn AB, Germany. Things that really should not have happened. Every word is true. The names have NOT been changed to protect the innocent.
I really can’t believe I haven’t posted this gem before. So without further ado, I present for your reading amusement…..in no particular order……
