The author served with the 22nd Fighter Day Squadron of the 36th Fighter Day Wing, later to become the 36th Tactical Fighter Wing at Bitburg AB Germany, from 1957 to 1960 as an Aircraft Radio Repairman, AFSC 30150.

During this tour at Bitburg the squadron flew the F-100-C and the F-100-F, a two-seat version of the F-100 which had additional capabilities and electronics.

Also during this period the squadron frequently had extended stays at other bases in USAFE and namely
Wheelus AB in Libya and Furstenfeldbruck, Spangdahlem and Ramstein Air Bases in Germany and in 1958 a team was formed from personnel and aircraft from all five of the wings squadrons to attend the worldwide USAF gunnery competition at Nellis AFB, Nevada.
