I enlisted in the Air Force in Feb, 1969. I had some great assignments in the 20 years I spent in the Military. During my stay, 1/4 of my time was spent overseas. Vietnam, Thailand twice and Italy. I met a lot of interesting and fun people, many of them I am still in contact with today. In all my travels around the world, there has been no place like the good old U. S. A. And within this great country, there are few places as great as Coeburn, Va.
