Somewhere under New Mexico skies…
Okay, “coming soon” might be a bit of hyperbole since the publication date is scheduled for August 2022. But, hey, I was excited to see the cover *and* finish the final proofing of the manuscript this weekend. Since Falcon Air Force Station (now known as Schriever Space Force Base) was the successor in both legacyContinue reading “Coming Soon! Schriever SFB Through Time”
On April 7, 2022, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) added a blog post titled “Have You Ever Heard of the Blue Cube?” about Onizuka Air Force Station. While I was excited to read something about the Blue Cube that was “new,” I wanted to punch my computer screen after I read it. So, in typicalContinue reading “Comments on “Have You Ever Heard of the Blue Cube?””

A few years ago, I saw a bird like this sitting on a rock in my front yard. I’d lived in New Mexico most of my adult life, but I did not know which species it was… until s/he decided to run off to another sunspot in the yard. Holy cow… it was a roadrunner.Continue reading “A Roadrunner Trying to Stay Warm”
Backstory on this response letter: way back in 2010 or 2011, the NRO was doing their thing and taking their sweet-ass time in declassifying the existence of Gambit and Hexagon. Now, this would have been the first major declassification effort since Corona (1995), so it was kept under wraps pretty well, but the audience wasContinue reading “Not a Fan of Politicians… or their Staffers”

So I had a bit of a verbal tussle with someone on FB, after I posted a paperwork package to submit a claim for Tinnitus (that damn ringing in the ears) for fellow Missile Combat Crew Members (aka “missileers”). If you’re in need of an assist to file your VA claim for Tinnitus, see theContinue reading “Commentary on VA Claim for Tinnitus”

This photo was taken for some ass-hat general as a “thank you” from the 4SPCS.
