What You Want For Christmas

What I want for Christmas is to see my grandchildren's happy faces when they see their presents.
After being in Mississippi, I served in Korea, Guam, and Hawaii. I ended up in McGuire AFB, there I was asked if I wanted to get out of the Air Force, being in my twenties, and not having an older person to ask for advice. I got out of the Air Force, only if I could do it all again. I was proud to be an Airman. I do have two daughters whom just graduated from Lackland AFB, TX and serving in the military. Praise the Lord.

I Spent close to a year in the Corps but was not active for the last 2 months due to injuring my lips in a traffic accident (Sep 61). One of the best memories was performing in the Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans with the Corps taking first place, beating out the Army & Navy bands. We spent quite a bit of time that evening in Al Hirt's night club. One of our horn players was a good friend of Al's and he showed us a good time.

I marched 84-85 under Ssgt Odom. Played snare. I came in with DCI background and we worked hard. The drum line was tight. I had loads of fun from secret new member initiation to marching from bourbon street to the superdom in Mardi Gras. Tech school was year long for me, marching with the Ble Knightswas a real honor. I'd very much like to see them again.

Never a member, but my two best friends and classmates in Airborne Radio Operator course in 1958 were members; Bent Rasmussen and Scotty Stephens. I auditioned but didn't make it. I did enjoy watching the Keesler D&B Corps in action though. Thanks for the great website.

I was in ATC school so I wasn’t in as long as some other career fields. I remember the blessing of the shrimp boat fleet and the grand opening of a new VFW post and a new shopping mall opening ceremony.

Not much is better than a rare aged steak braised with a mushroom sauce. Blackened Redfish comes close.
I was in Fife and Drum while training as a 491x2 (Database Programmer)... 1st weekend our NCOIC told us that "When you are on this base, you are my responsibility. Therefore, on the weekends, I do not want to see one of you on this base." All of our weekends were spent at the SeaView Inn, mostly drinking.

Overseas tours at Karamursel, Turkey (18 months, Dec. 1970 to June 1972) and RAF Chicksands UK (16 months, Oct. 1972 to Feb. 1974). Advanced wideband training between the overseas tours at Ft.

Thank you for sharing this with us. My husband, Jim Criswell, was in from 72-73. He passed unexpectedly in 2016. I am so happy to find anything that his friends have to share from his life. Keep the stories coming. We are so very grateful.
