I was stationed at Ft. McClellan, AL. I was an MP,and handled a case for one of the crew chiefs. I was,and still am,totally helicopter-crazy. They allowed me to crew-chief on my days off from being an MP. I did training flights,combat orientation flights,ROTC flights,etc. Pilots let me get some stick time. I loved it. One of the high points of my life. They only flew with one pilot on these missions. The crew chiefs were tired of flying,so they loved it when I would help out.contender":3a2we67r said:Lt,, were you stationed at Ft Hood by chance???
