Ed Krupinski
Ed Krupinski Class of 1961
Air Force, 4 Years
Served as a KC-135 Flying Gas Station Flight Simulator Specialist. The simulator had a permanent installation at the Strategic Air Command Headquarters at Westover AFB in Mass. The Airmen served on a rotating temporary duty assignment for the flight simulator built in a railroad car. The railroad car was huge compared to a regular RR car because it had hydraulically expanding sides that opened up when power was connected to the car at a railroad side on the AFB. The car traveled between Florida, Georgia, and Michigan during the year. An Airman, including myself, traveled in the car as it was moved by locomotives between the bases. I think that they had an airman two or three stripe travel with the car so the Air Force could have someone to blame and court-martial if the car derailed or was moved a thousand miles with the brakes locked. With the wheels locked the brakes could shoot sparks and start forest fires between the bases. The RR car had a pull-down Murphy type bed, a sink, a liquor cabinet (refrigerator), and a view of America thru an open personnel door with a chain across the opening to prevent the wheeled office chair from dumping you into the Okeefeenokee Swamp, an Atlanta slum, or a Jacksonville RR switching yard. The Air Force was an alternative to Viet Nam. There wasn't any money in rank but then again there was no Gook shooting at you or poisoning you with bamboo spear points.
