Iraklion Air station 8/76-8/78 as QC Chief for MWR. Wife Jill, Son Johnathan (age 10-12),Daughter Amanda(age 5-7)were also there.
We lived in Base Housing near the Sea.
In 2010 the family + 2 spouses and 4 grand kids returned to Crete for a week and a visit to the base. Although I had seen photos of the base on the internet it was still a shock to see it in it’s present condition. Regards to all who served.
Stationed on Crete from 8-65 to 2-67. I think I was on Dawg Flt
