The following is my account of an incident that I experienced as an Auto-Track Radar Repairman in the USAF. Names were either modified or omitted for the usual reasons. I was a Sr. Airman assigned to the maintenance shift at Detachment 1, 1CEVG La Junta, Colorado. Det 1 was one of many sites across the states that aided in the training of pilots for the purpose of improving bombing skills and threat evasion. We accomplished this by acquiring and tracking military aircraft as they'd attempt simulated bomb runs over a virtual war zone consisting of rancher's silos and farm houses. The TSQ-96 was a Vietnam era radar system but still up for the task in this, the early 1980's. In charge of the 96 and my immediate supervisor was a rather portly Staff Sergeant that reminded me of a...
The Honey Queen from Galway An exercise in Symbolism There is a fine seductive reasoning, and it appears as a form of mental sickness. Like the effects of too much of the juice of the barley, it leads men to sit around, confidently bumping their gums. In this type of closed mutual admiration society, there goes on a lot of virtue flaunting and preening. Where goes Ireland today?...
"The past is the past" "You cannot rewrite history." Valid points but you simply cannot ignore the past. You must accept the past before you can accept the ultimate will to change. Now nearing the rip age of thirty, I am finally coming to term with my long lasted 'growing up' phase. Mainly because of unhappiness with myself.

We were fishing near the Papua New Guinea Western most coast near Wewok. About 10 RD boats, or rather all of the companies large Purse Seiners were hunting for tuna in a pack of boats. The weather was not good. Strong wind, grey skies, light drizzle, and a rather...
Field Trip - Visiting a Field on a Trip to Do good in Papua New Guinea. One day I was just meandering maybe scribbling up in the pilot house, on the helideck, when I received a visit from Jeffrey. Jeffrey 'The beast' is a PNG man on our boat that performs the most dangerous job on the boat. He is the assistance Skiff man. He is the individual that connects the net cables from the Skiff boat...
BeWARE OF THE FOAMER BONER The flying is amazing, fun, and sometimes challenging in the Tuna fields! Making a landing to a moving rust bucket with 15 ft seas swells, as sea water crashes over the 40 ft high helideck, and ever so gently setting your choppa to a small helideck will give any pilot a sense of real accomplishment. On the particular Pilipino boat I am wisping off of in a...
