Back from basic...

Got done with Air Force BMT. Graduated on Friday the 13th of June, and now I'm in tech school here in Biloxi, Mississippi. :patriot:

Re: Back from basic...

Ended up getting Integrated Avionics. (AFSC 2A533A).

In short, it's like being a mechanic for electronics on bombers and heavies. Dunno where I'll be stationed at yet, but I still have about another 5 months of tech school so...

Classes are pretty cool, electronics is something I didn't know a whole lot about before so it's pretty interesting to me. Once I get to my next base for further instruction, me and some buddies are already talking about building our own Tessla Coil.

Basic was kinda fun in some ways. Not while you were living it, but looking back on it now and some of the stuff the TI's would do, it was actually pretty funny. Definitely a lot of memories and stories.

Awesome that's what my dad did when he was in the air force. He worked on the electronics on the b-52's.

I can't remember when the last time you were here, was. I upgraded to a car that you'll probably beat at the track.

Including some processing time, about 6 months. Just as an FYI about how much info we are actually getting crammed in, the 8 week course I am here for...counts for 15 credit hours. 2:

Unfortunately, due to the phase up program, my graduation group wont be able to leave base outside of a dress uniform until about 2 more weeks, and to be honest I don't have a whole lot of time right now being on the drill team also.

Yeah. Thanks to the 2.73 gearing, it's a couple of .1's slower than my fastest time in the TA.

Stupid question, but since you posted this I have to ask, you know this isn't the local darkshadows Nate right?

Yes, I'm in Greenville now. About 45 minutes east of Dallas on I-30.
