Tsgt. Jonathan P. Gifford UAAF (Ret)

I joined the us Air force on August 8th 1978. Basic at Lackland AFB and was a Security Policeman. Assignments included Ellsworth AFB SD, Spangdahlem AB Germany, Whiteman AFB Mo. Kirtland AFB NM. Three tours in Iraq/Saudi, Panama, Grenada and more TDY's than I care to remember. I miss the life and think of it often, been ten years since I left that way of life. I'm a proud veteran. If there's any other SP's out there I sure would like to here from you..

I jokned "This here now Air Force" in Oct. '55. Basic at Samson AFB, Tech school at Keesler, Stationed at Kirtland. 34th Air Division (Defense). 3 1/2 years in lovely Albuquerque. That was back when you could go 6 blocks north or south of Central Ave. and be out in the desert. Did get to race dirt track stockers against the Unser boys while I was there, though. .
Got out in '59.
