another year of being able to walk around
I was one of those six week people. I only remember getting on the bus, but not being able to join because of being new. I remember being called to the TechSgt's office for some kind of reprimand or other & having high heel patent leather shoes on. He asked why I was wearing those & I told him it was after duty hours. He looked to a female Sgt & she nodded her head lol. I wish I could remember names - that was a lifetime ago...I do remember that TechSgt wore mirror sunglasses lol

What You Want For Christmas

for my family to have everything they want
I remember being a scared kid getting off the bus from that long drive from San Antonio. Someone was there to greet us and ask "does anyone play drums or a horn"? The rest is history. This was late June. I loved being in the D&B. I also worked weekends at a loca radio station. We were in the 2 story barracks across from the exchange. Best times of my life. I remember being promoted to drum sgt and getting that special private room at the top of the stairs in dorm 1. The bugle sgt had the private room in 2 and the drum magor had the room in 3. We had a great corp and if you could only go back and do it gain.

Another year.
Was a member of the Drum & Bugle Corp at Kessler AFB in Biloxi after basic at San Antonio in 1970. Got to march in the Sugar Bowl Parade 1971. Was a ditty bopper student and shipped out to San Vito, Italy in February 1971. Loved my time in the Corp. Loved our many trips to New Orleans on the weekends, those I can remember anyway. ;-)

What You Want For Christmas

All the years back !!!
I had played trumpet in Middle and High School and some afterwards, so when I joined AF in '71 and my first assignment was to Keesler AFB I immediately found the Blue Knights. After an incredible 72 hours (do they still do that?) I had a blast and would have continued, but got a re-assignment and moved to Chanute IL. The time I did play, was extremely memorable. Thanks for creating this site. My best to y'all.

Not a ditty bop but I did at least learn that "HIT IT" ( other than SOS it is the only code I know)
Baritone bugle and quartermaster latter part of year and helped with clean up of Hurricane Fredrick... Loved the vets at Pascagula that worked with us during that trying time. Keesler was my Avionics Training base. Some of the times are sketchy due to a special place called "Maws" just out the back gate ( if i even remember the name correctly). I will look for some pics that survived my own fire in 1982 and post them sometime.

My time in the corps was one of the most memorable periods of my life. Would love to see more former members join as alumni, as well as joining the sister site on FB. Hoping for a reunion some day!
