He retired in the '70s. He enjoyed it for a number of years and he got frustrated watching the bureaucracy just get deeper and deeper until he decided to get out. At that point he was in the CG Reserves.
TonyD said:CD, it was only a good natured jib. Most of the folks I've met in the CG were basically set for life. It really was a civillian job in uniform with all the 'bennies'. It's especially great for SAR folks, from what I've witnessed.

Not to get off topic...however right after 9/11, hubby and I were working as armed guards and we got posted at the Aux. CG station in Boston. (There were a few nervous situations, and funny ones, but that's for another topic) Anywho, for the vast majority of the CG'ers there, they were awesome kids. There was this one, however, who was looking at my .40 on my hip and asking questions about it. One of the ones he asked (and he was completely serious) was "So, do you ever, like, wanna shoot someone?" [shock] After closing my mouth, I told him absolutely not.
TonyD said:That's the difference. I'd have looked him straight in the eye and said, "Yes, and you're number one on my list. Any other stupid questions?" And, walked away before he could even comprehend what I just said.
Upon his relief from comand (new CO coming in, his time to go back to the states) the custom was for the new CO to fly the old CO out after turning over duties. They did, and was shot down. Both were lost.
