Keesler AFB

#1  Postby noncredo » Mar 15, 2010 7:49 pm

So any USAF people stationed at Keesler here? Me and the wife have been here for about a year, and all told...not too bad. Of course we came from Shaw, and I think Sumter would go down as one of my least favorite places, so I saw most options as a step up from that. The wife likes the every other Friday off thing she gets as an instructor, and Mardi Gras is pretty fun. We did find out that she is going to be heading Afghanistan soon for a 6 month deployment. Not the best news, but I guess it could have been worse.

Anyway, anyone at Keesler right now. If so, how do you like it, and have you tried the Cafe New Orleans or Bops, both in Diberville? If not, you should definitely check them out.

I was never assigned there, but went to IP training in the C-21 and a few other TDYs there. I guess it's a lot like Bahrain is in the middle east. God(s) can't see over the bridge to all the "sin and decadence" that goes on by the water's edge, so people tend to be a lot more relaxed there than in other areas of the south. I found the fundie population at Eglin to be much more insufferable than many of the other southern bases I was stationed at.

Noncredo, check out Kim Long's. Turn left off Beach Road in front of the Beau. It's so good. Chicken Panang is the way to go. I was there for Tech School years ago and just completed NCOA a few months back. Keeseler is a good time.

Also, ribs at the shed. You gotta do that if you haven't already.

Every time I had to go there for some school or other, I liked it less. The casino barges did not improve that position.

It must be only pork barrel politics that kept that base open and closed Lowry AFB, Colorado, a functionally identical base that will never get hit by a fucking hurricane. It's a strategically stupid place to put an airbase with the mission Keesler has.

Check out Hack's blog, too. He writes good.

One of the missions of Keesler is that of "Hurricane Hunters" so it kinda makes sense. Otherwise, yes, I agree. All of the active duty AETC crap should be moved elsewhere.

Ha! I went to Eglin in 1984 with our very soon to be defunct F-111's. I'm an ex-RAAF radio technician. I had a wonderful time there. Hired a car and went over to New Orleans for the Expo. Some of the best food I've ever had.
