Default Any active or retired military racers out there?

In honor of veteran's day, just wanted to see if there are any other guys out there who serve and also race.

Well I used to be in the Air Force, but no longer. Wished I would of stayed in. I'd be retiring in 10 years if I did!! hehe. I see you are in/near Boston. You at Hanscom? I was stationed there when I got out after my 4 years. Great base. I would of stayed there and worked as a civi, but they got rid of CE. I'm also a military brat and first started RC in Oki, Japan back in 86. Did 1/12th scale and 4wd offroad. Went back to Oki in 96 and did Touring cars. Where you racing now?

4 years in the Air Force (stationed in Idaho). Loaded weapons on the F-15C's. I got a rare chance to fly one too!

Pictures are of the flightline, weapons load crew (Always a 3 man team. Not a picture of me), and two F-15C's.
