    I want to think you start at Sheppard....if so, I'm sorry. That base is not too exciting.

    Reserves and Guard dont have to do the Undergraduate aircrew course at Sheppard. It's a "weeding out" class. Guard and Reserves have the Interview to weed out people.

    I went through the non-parachute course at Fairchild AFB. It was 2 days, they talk about what sea life you can and can't eat, how to take care of the raft. We went to the swimming pool and put us in a mock up airplane, turned the lights off and we had to evacuate, swim to the liferaft, get in and get it set up. It was a blast.
