    I was a fighter crew chief on F-15E's, F-22's in Active Duty, and A-10A/C's in the Reserve. I was a civilian ART in the reserve where I trained the traditional reservists how to be a crew chief.

    I had AK on my dreamsheet the whole time I was in. I went through high school in Fairbanks (father was Army). The USAF never saw fit to grant my wish. I would love to get back up there...just to visit...I remember how long-n-cold the winters were.

    I would vote for Shaw being a black hole also. At least in Delaware you are in the middle of no where but still about an hour from everything.
