Sir! Candidate Comanchero86 Requests Assignment!

Post by (A/229) Comanchero86 on Fri 26 Aug 2016 - 16:00

Hello everyone, Tom Cav here. I live in Dothan Alabama about 23 miles down the road from Ft Rucker. My background includes 2 1/2 years as a Huey Crew Chief with A/101 Avn Bn (Comancheros) at Ft Campbell in the 70's. I reenlisted for ATC school which positioned me for a career in the FAA as a Controller. Retired 10 years ago. To keep busy, I now volunteer and work for the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation. I work and fly as a crew chief on our Huey and Cobra at airshows and other events supporting Veterans. Our Huey has served with A/229 in Vietnam and has patched bullet holes to prove it. It is painted in the A/229 colors.

I have been involved with sim racing but now want to switch to Flight Sims. I ran across your web page and feel you guys are exactly what I'm looking for. I hope, if I'm accepted, to be positive member of the community. I noticed from perusing your forums you occasionally have questions about actual equipment measurements and what not. I will be glad to help in anyway I can.

I'm going to need help with DCS and flying the Huey but I intend to put in the work to get up to speed. Thanks for considering me, Tom Cav

Hi Tom,
welcome to the 229th, I am sure your experiences will generate lots of questions round here. IIRC SKeeter posted about being away so don't worry too much if there is a delay in your receipt of orders

Please go to the "Usergroups" link above and select "A Company/229th (North America)" and you will be accepted into the appropriate company. I will send you your assignment orders via PM that will explain the steps necessary to get set up with the battalion. Welcome to the 229th.

Welcome in Tom, ive given you a "WOC Sig", but hopefully its temporary for you, great to have another soldier amongst us. Your certainly welcome to fly with C Coy as well. Hope you dont mind but i took the liberty of finding and sticking on your Comanchero Avatar. If you want to change anything let me know.
