I used to work with a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant. He was in Korea when things busted loose and everyone got squeezed down to the Pusan Perimeter, and he was at Minot ND and had a crew to work on the B-52's when it was so cold each man went out,turned the wrench a turn and went back to hand it to the next mechanic. He was also in Thailand when Air America (or someone) came in with the loads of nitro, and flying around DC when Kennedy was assassinated. He also lost 13 teeth when the helicopter he was crew chiefing (is that a word?) landed and a VC jumped out of some bushes and hit him with the butt of a real AK-47.
A stalwart man, and I miss him.
