October 1974. My birthday was on a Tuesday. I was most likely working at the hospital/medical records. Unhappy with life and planning my escape.

I moved West within a little more than a year.

What years were you stationed there?
I was stationed at Kelly (Medina Annex) '82
Moved to Lackland (worked in the comm center) in '83-85
Retrained and moved to Wilford Hall ('85-'89)

(Went to both tech schools at Sheppard.)

Join the Air Force and see Texas-specifically, San Antonio.

FINALLY in '89 I went to Greece 9 months before I was medically retired.

How about you?

Stationed in Florida in the Air Force. On my 21st, nothing really spectacular, just went to work and came home as I recall.

Smile Attended a 21st birthday for someone else

Working at a computer company; tons of employees.

Asked by someone we all knew to come over that night (it was a Friday night). We went over just from work and when we got there, we noticed balloons on the mailbox.

Oh-oh.

No gifts in hand.

One of us went to the door to inquire, were told to come in as more heads were needed, etc.

I never told anyone it was also my birthday.

Years later, the birthday boy in question found out. He is now my husband.

I was stationed in Keflavik, Iceland. A bunch of us went out to drink and dance at the enlisted club, The Top of the Rock. Anyone here ever been?
