Thoughts on the 58th Bomb Wing:
An experience that cannot be bought, one I wouldn't want to repeat. I met and worked with some great people, flight instructors and training personnel, plus all those I was in training with; and, of course, the crew of "Jack's Hack". Now the reunions bring back much.
