Default Any Tucson Arizona people?

Well being that I'm military and move around alot it's hard to find people to jam with. Anyone on here from Tucson? I'd love to get together with someone for some jam sessions.

So how is DM? I was stationed there way back in 1986.

Not too bad. Still small compared to my last base (Elmendorf AFB) in Alaska. I switched jobs in the AF though. I used to be a comm guy and now I'm a gunner on a helicopter. so in the new job we don't have a whole lot of base options like I used to in comm. Kind of nice that it's close to my home towin in southern california at least. It's nice to be able to drive home and see the friends and family occasionally.

Not quite Tuscon, but I'll be moving to Tempe as of August 15th.
I'll try not to run into your bird in my cessna when i'm out flying around though ;)

AK to AZ? Did you request that switch?

No not really. I used to be in communications where you could pretty much go to any base in the world. Well not too long ago the AF cut back on 40,000 people in order to buy more f-22's. One way they used to cut back on people was to get jobs that where overmanned. When people in those jobs came up to re-enlist they where either forced to get out or change into a job that was needing more people. Being that I got caught up in that force shaping I decided to become an aerial gunner. When I got seleceted for the job I was put into pavehawk helo's which in the active duty are at very few bases. Las Vegas, Tucson, Moody AFB Georgia, Japan, and England are the only choices for bases that I could get stationed at. It just so happened that DM AFB needed a gunner at the time so I got stationed here.
