Your BMT Memories

Attn James Womack, I was in 3743 Flt 288. I was the Dorm Chief. I remember you well. Did anyone else make contact with you from the flight.

Post 9-11
I was set to depart for Lackland from the MEPS in San Antonio on 11 Sept 2001. While waiting for the final processing to start, we watched the second plane hit the world trade center on TV and then heard about the pentagon. Surprisingly we were sent home and told to contact our recruiters for more info. We ended up going to Lackland for BMT on 14 Sept 01. While waiting for a the bus, I noticed a male who apparently did not want to go to BMT and initially was a no-show. His mom, however, brought him to MEPS and talked the AF recruiters into letting him go. Everyone was a little rattled after 9-11, but those who went were dedicated to the cause of freedom. I was and still am proud to have been the one of the Airmen graduating from that 9-11 class.

3723 BMTSFLT 375 April-May 1982
Looking to see if anyone from my Basic Training Flight was still in the AF. MTI's were TSgt Michael Thompson, TSgt Walls, SSgt Fowler, SSgt Love. I have been around the world and have only run into 2 of my former basic training flight members. SSgt Abels, who did his time and got out, and SSgt Medina, whom I ran into at Lackland AFB 20 years and one month after basic. If anyone is still out there, including my former TI's, drop me an email.

Looking for BMT Flight info
I attended basic training beginning 7 Feb 1967 and probably ending in late Mar 67. Does anyone have information about Flights at that time? The "hard nosed" TI I can remember was TSgt Beaushane probably not spelled right. There is one flight photo on the site from that time that is listed as UNK. I cannot be sure that I'm in the picture because time has taken the toll on the old eyes. The TI sitting in the middle with the scowll on his face sure seems to be, as best as I can recall, Beaushane. The photo does not have any names like most of the other photos on the site so I can't be absolutely sure. Anyone know? Gary V Steward MSgt Retired

3704 BMTS 1977
Found a blog by one of my trainees in flt 88 back in Jan 1977. Surprised him, Bob Bost, with a phone call last evening and was he ever amazed that he would ever find his MTI let alone talk with him. We had a great chat. Hopefully I can find some others. Anyone out there who had TSgt/Msgt Thompson as their MTI or Section Supervisor? Contact me:

3704 BMTS Flt. 1244 Photo
I would like to hear from anyone who was part of Flt. 1244 Sep. 67. I would also like to get a copy of the flight photo. Tsgt Gagliardi and SSgt. Miller were the TI and Team Members, both excellent NCO's.

Hi to all. I am also from Offutt AFB. I am looking to get in contact with a buddy of mine when I was at Offutt. I am looking for Randy "GATOR" Sharpless. He was an aircraft jet engine mechanic and I was a Pneudraulic mechanic, also known as a hydraulic systems mechanic. He was last known to be stationed at Offutt AFB for a second time around 2003 to 2005. If anyone knows him, please let him know I am trying to get in contact with him. My e-mail is I was in the air force for 13 yrs 6 months and 20 days before being injured. I was medically discharged with a VA pension. But I like to follow Air Force news and go to the air show. I was also stationed at Incirlik AB, Turkey, Hickam AFB, HI and at March AFB, Ca. When discharged, I moved back to Nebraska even though I was from Ohio. To anyone that was stationed where I was, contact me and lets chat.

Missing BMT Flight photo
Great work on this site and the number of flight photos dating back many years! I am in search of the BMT flight photo for 3709 BMTS, Flt 459. We started training on 7 May 82 and graduated sometime in late June 82. Our MTI was SSgt Locklear and I was squad leader. My 'X' threw away my copy of our BMT 'yearbook' and my BMT flight photo. I would be very grateful if anyone who has one could post the image to this site ASAP. V/R, James L Salgado TSgt, USAFR
