Anyone up in ND? Air Force is moving me.

So I the Air Force is force retraining me from a fighter to a heavy crew chief. Not happy about that. Then I get my assignment in my new career field and its to Minot AFB ND. Anybody in that region of the world? Trying to see what life is like up there.

I have a friend that was stationed there, he said he actually liked it there. He's now at Keesler as an instructor. From what I gathered from him the area sucked, but the camaraderie was great. Probably because of the shitty area.

Just tell them you're a pilot like the rest of the crew chiefs do.

I am a married man I was just joking. Looking at snowmobiles now. Only positive I might have to re-enlist to take the assignment. There is a bonus in this career field
