I was with 3rd MAPS at Pope from Aug 83 - Feb of 87. That place was always jumping! I worked on Green Ramp as a load team member and then supervisor before separating in 87.
I remember lots of basketball games out front when we weren't setting up loads or waiting with pax.
Great times with a great bunch of guys (and Donna!) anyone remember that?
Would love to hear from anyone there.

8 MAPS Clark AB 1985-1989 I wanted to extend my tour but the wife had enough. It was my best tour!!! Seemed like I was always TDY somewhere else in Southeast Asia, Japan, Korea, Tinian, Diego-Garcia, Thailand!!! Lots of great memories!!!!
5th MAPS (76-79) now back to that long name that everyone did not appreciate and so was called "Avocado". am so glad to find this site, and glimpses of old friends and co-workers....who used to joke that the slogan "Omnia - Semper - Ubique" translated to "Odd - Simple - Unique"...an amazing group with Mitch donning a bunny suit, teams in chariot races, and pie-throwing auctions to cut the tensions of constant and rapid deployments to so many strange and amazing places.

Hey Brothers and Sisters of the maps. I had the honor of serving in the %th MAPS from late 1978 to early 1982. I think of those days every day. We saw the best and the worst the world had to offer. We were the best and the best knew it. Gentlemen and not so gentlemen and women of the 5th, I will always be at your service.

Holly Cow! I see all other MAPPERS on here, but where are the 7th MAPPPERS! 7th MAPS 89-96, best part of my whole career! Thanks Col Bishop for taking me with you guys to the war and keeping me with 7th MAPS. I just stumble on this site. Great to hear about all the MAPPERS still hanging around. Col Bishop, sorry sir, I can't never call you Mark (respect). Glad to hear you, Amy and the rest of your family are well. Hope to make 2012 reunion. I will try my best.
Tina, Tim, Buddy, Scott "not so little" Little. Glad to hear you guys are well also.
Take care guys and hope to see you guys at the next reunion.
