My name is Vince, but my online name is Sgt. Mac. I was a Sergeant in the USAF, and the name Mac, came from Military Airlift Command. (No, I wasn't in the MAC, but Sgt. TAC (Tactical Air Command), or SGT. SAC, (Strategic Air Command), didn't sound too cool, lol!!
Was an Air Policeman, aka M.P. in the USAF, from 1966-1971. Stationed at RAF Lakenheath, RAF W. Raynham, RAF Sculthorpe in the UK, then last year at Plattsburgh AFB, N.Y. Lakenheath was TAC, Raynam was temporary, (They had the VTOL GR-8?), Sculthorpe was Combat Support, and Plattsburgh, Heavy Bombers, (B-52's).
Interested in military history from the age of five. From 5-9, learned of my families military history. Found an old flight jacket that told me of my dad's service in the AAF. Found a pic of a grandfather I never knew, in a WWI uniform, and was told a horrific naval story by a favorite uncle.
At age 68, have spent most of that time researching and writing about my families military history.
Being former AF, have a long love affair with military aircraft. Had three uncles in the navy, so also a fan of Naval history. Trying to finish a book on the three childhood memories that led to my interest in the military. Also trying to complete research on my grandfathers service in WWI and write a book. A third book on my time in the AF is also planned.
Currently collecting mostly WWI postcards, and military memorabilia related to my grandad. Same thing with my dad and uncles who were in the AAF and the US Navy.
