COL I feel the same way, always long to be back in the Air Force. I was a booger hooker on F-15's from 94-01.

I could not serve due to being diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic at age 15. I really wanted to join, but being on insulin kept me out. Dad was a marine for 22 years, three uncles were air force, cousins were in army and navy. All I can do is support. To all who serve and their families,and to those who have served: Thank you!

doctherock,
I feel you brother, I was Security Forces 05-09, miss it dearly. A whole bunch of good and bad times but I would do it again! Best friends I ever had were the ones I served with, Luckily I still keep in touch with them. Thank you for your service sir. And thank you to all the vets!!

Retired E-7 after 26 years as 1C5 radar operator (Scope Dope), 1984 to 2010. Miss it! Very Much So! Go back in a heartbeat, if called to go back; however, the disabilities would prevent it!
