What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

I should say, "Thanks for the memories." Edwards AFB was one of my favorite assignments...miss seeing all those new aircraft.


Ret USAF - 1961-1982

PS: I know a little 'bout Navy life...had a special duty assignment at Sigonella, Sicily back in '79...in fact I went to Sicily from Edwards.

Yeah, but that was the P-3 Navy. Tailhook outfits are different.
I got this job after being laid off at Hawker Beechcraft in Wichita. Got laid off February 26, 2009 and started here on November 9 that same year.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
