Where were you or your family stationed?
First tour of service was with VA-85 at NAS Oceana, Virginia Beach, Va. Plane Captain and Jet Engine Mechanic on A6-E's and KA6-D's.

After a brief stint as a civilian, about 9 months, I reenlisted into the Air Force as a crew chief on F111-A's at Mt. Home AFB, Idaho. From there, I did 3 years at Kadena AFB, Okinawa on F-15C's and F-15D's. I went on to Flight Engineer School and was stationed in Charleston AFB, South Carolina on C-141B's.

I got out as a single father of 3 boys and went to work for Boeing in Wichita, Kansas (my home town) and have been there ever since. I did remarry 14 years ago to a wonderful woman with 3 more children. So I currently have 6 children (all grown) and 7 grandchildren.

Hi Tony,
This Bev, Max's wife.
I wanted to let you know that Max passed away unexpectedly on Sept 17, 2016.
His service will not be until January 27, 2017, when our son can be here from Bahrain.

Murph!
Welcome to NavyVets! Make sure you join the VA-85 command.  While you're there, get comfortable and read through the comments. I guarantee you'll be traveling down memory lane and get up to date on who done it, when and where.  Also, feel free to upload any pictures you may want to share.  I've posted a few on my profile you may recognize.
Another reunion is targeted for 2014, hope to see you there!
