    Next step is tech school which I believe is 6 months long. The entire 8 weeks I thought about what fly rod I was going to buy to carry with me in my travels Places like Spain, Italy, Germany, Alaska (counts as overseas haha)

    Well it certainly has been awhile. I got my wings on June 14th, went to survival school and water survival, and got to my first base two weeks ago today. I'll be stationed at Travis AFB between Sacramento and Oakland.

    There was an airshow today so I was able to step foot on the plane I'll be flying on for the next 6+ years of my career. I can't wait to start flying!

    If you haven't read this thread, I'll be doing in flight refueling. I fly the boom from the back of the aircraft and refuel other planes.















    Pictured is my plane, the KC-10. The metal rod under the tail is the boom, and also pictured is the refueling pod. I sit in that chair with the joysticks and guide the boom into the receptacle.

    I also took a picture with Captain Kristin "Mother" Hubbard, Thunderbird F-16 pilot. She was the event coordinator/narrator for the airshow in Smyrna. My mom worked with her a lot, and we found out last week my mom has cancer So I knew it would make her day if I sent her a picture of me in my flight suit with Captain Hubbard.

    I almost took that exact same job with the Airforce and then decided to go infantry at the last minute (I think I had a virus). Sorry to hear about your mother. The good news is that cancer survival rates are very good these days for most cancers. Sounds like you are in a nice area. I bet there are some nice places to fish around that area. Hope you are well.

    Yeah, she's doing very well. 6 weeks of chemo and she'll roadtrip my car out here! Quite the trooper.

    But today was the crowning piece. Incentive flight
