|What happened to Jim Hartle
- 30 year update -
|For those who don't remember or
weren't there, I left Hawaii in May 1969. I sold my old yellow 1960 Ford Galaxy to
Don Huffman and he took me to the Airport in the car, with Andy and Barb along for the
ride. Well, some drunk Hawaiian hit us at the airport. Everyone was all right.
I think Andy was
pregnant with a baby. Well, the cops came and started writing up the Hawaiian guy. But, I had to catch the plane.
ran with me to the terminal she kissed me good bye and I just caught the plane. It
was not the departure we had planned!
|I was promised a
lot, rank back , etc., but you know the AF. Ended up with a rank of E-2.
Pretty sad for a former SSgt. When I reenlisted I chose Computer Maintenance
and was off to Keesler for Training. Then to Barksdale in 1973 and stayed there
1980 to 1983 - SHAPE HQ in Mons Belgium (great assignment).
Summer of 1983 to summer 1984 - Wurtsmith MI (bad
Then to Goodfellow in 1984 for instructor
