    Hi all. My name is Jeff and I'm a retired USAF dentist. I've had a running love affair with USAAC and USAAF aircraft since I started on active duty in 1976 and this seems to be a great place to continue that affair. I'm currently a large scale car and aircraft model builder and a nose art junkie. I've painted about a dozen or so A2 jacket backs and made countless patches. I used to collect WWII USAAF memorabilia but I lost most of my collection in Hurricane Andrew. I just couldn''t take it all with me.

    Hello Jeff, welcome to the forum. Be prewarned though, sometimes we former enlisted pukes take a shot at members of the officer corps in our stories from long, long ago. Just keep your gun close and don't be afraid to shoot back. And remember...shoot low we may be riding shetlands!:lol:

    No problem, Doug. I happen to think enlisted "pukes" are the backbone of the military. Without them, a lot of work wouldn't get done. You don't expect officers to do any work now do you??
