I went to Great Lakes for Boot Camp in 1978, but went to Avionics
school in Memphis for the rest of my training. I was an AQ- Aviation
Fire-Control Tech, radar, flight computer, ballistics computer,
doppler, heads-up display, air-nav computer. I worked on A7-E's, and
was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station in California. I was on the
USS Kitty Hawk in the Indian Ocean during the "original" Persian Gulf
crisis, and was part of (passively that is) the botched rescue attempt
of the 50(?) hostages in hmm, what year was that now..., well it was
between 78-82, but that's as good as my memory gets these days :-)

WOW, Great Lake NTC! Were you ever in the Gunnery School? I wrote an
operating system that was installed on the MK13 and MK26 missile
launcher training systems. We traveled a lot to GLNTC. Fly in to
MKE(Mitchell) and drive down, easier than trying to go in to O'Hare
and drive out.
No, I was not in the munitions field. I was a Twidget, more commonly
known as an Electronics Technician. I was trained in surface search
radar and shore based communications. I've recently begun to re-learn
what I learned in the first place, picked up an O'Scope and all.
Having a lot of fun!!!
