Completed 1989. We rented a house for 9 months while I got qualified as a fixed-wing pilot. It had very little counter space. This microwave cart was a quick project to fill an immediate need. It’s a no-nonsense construction using knock-down fasteners.

Hah, it seems that we have a bit in common. I finished my rotary-wing flight school at Ft. Rucker in 1988.

Love the wallpaper :^)

Awesome, I was a Fort Rucker “purple hat.” Graduated in Sep 85. Flew one tour in HH-3E’s in Alaska and then switched over to fixed-wing and flew C-130s the rest of my career.

Geez man. You remember the color hat! Now that you mention it, I think I started out with Gray but finished orange. They took a few of us out of cycle to participate in a simulator training experiment.

Flew my butt off with NCARNG after that flying mostly UH-1’s and OH-58’s. I was a guard bum. That lead me to fly a Bell 412 for the hospital which rekindled my interest in medicine. The Air Force paid for medical school. Finished my payback at Keelser and did 2 tours in Iraq. Good stuff. Couldn’t stick around for retirement though as most of my time in service was reserve time. It counted for time in grade but not for retirement.

I actually saved the hat. It’s displayed in my “I love me” wall/military shrine in our back hallway! My younger son is in tech school at Keesler.
