My Life in the Air Force: I was there when Nixon resigned.

Preface

This is the story of my career in the United States Air Force, from October 1971 to October 1975.  In retrospect, I have always considered that the single most notable aspect of that career was the fact that I was assigned to the Presidential Squadron at Andrews Air Force Base (AFB) Maryland during the time of Watergate.  12,744 more words
