Testing well used parachutes. Boy the things I saw in two weeks ! I think this was my second meaningful job, I worked as a Fire Department Dispatcher in Mid West City Oklahoma. The city is located right outside the main gate of Tinker AFB, at that time in 65 the new Star Lifters were flying out of Mid West City. In less than a year I was jumping from one. Life takes such crazy route sometimes. After going to the 101st the star lifter was being used as the main source of transportation for fast reaction forces of the Army. Everything was cool until they handed you ammo as you climbed aboard.
