Finally received a good pic of the son at work. Been flying in Robert Cross old USMC unit now out of Iwakuni in KC130J. Haven't talked him into a trailer yet, but about half the effort I expend on mine is in hopes of impressing a future wife of hisClick image for larger version

Thanks for posting the picture. He looks like a great young man.

In 1967/68 I few a flew flights out of Iwakuni in Navy P2Vs.

Once in a while they'd forced us off our R&R in Saigon and Cam Rahn Bay and make us go to work in Japan.

As a blue water sailor, I have a lot of respect for what the brown water navy does, especially the SAR stuff. The guys that do that are truly Heroes.....

My husband is a USMC KC-130J pilot as well. We've lived in Corpus Christi...but not in our Airstream...Our new A/C would get worn out there!

I bet your son will catch the bug...it's not a far reach from a riveted plane to a riveted trailer.

My husband's squadron was looking for a new mascot vehicle. Wouldn't an Airstream be perfect?

I think for him it'll come down to going camping with it. Wife and kids he doesn't yet have.

I see the J models going in and out of Carswell, now, and enjoy it every time.

Anyone interested in joining or knowing more about SMART.....Special Military Active Recreational Travelers.......can check out this website for info:

SmartRVing2.org

They are just as active as the Airstream Club but are mostly focused on promoting, upkeep, and traveling to campground/famcamps on military bases. They give an award each year to best campgrounds. They also organize trips overseas and on Space A for retirees.
