Sure did. DINFOS was the only assignment I ever had in 20 years that I didn't enjoy. Not because of the work... that was fun. I sort of had a personality conflict with the administrators, as you may recall. The saving grace was being able to work with some truly gifted folks... the ones you noted above. Fortunately, I was able to wrangle an assignment back to AFRTS-W and didn't complete the tour at Ben Harrison. Years later one of the admin guys got his rocks off by harassing my boss at AFRTS-W about me not wearing a uniform on TV. Fortunately AFIS got that solved. We weren't supposed to wear the damned things. Anyway....
You know Dale Dye, besides being a well know movie star ("Band of Brothers" among others) was the editor of "Soldier of Fortune." Another AFRTS-W alum. Some advice about storing things in boxes, Joe. I'm having to scrounge those things I lost. I stored all my stuff-reels and reels of audio and video tape, and slides-nearly a thousand. Then there was this flood and the place I rented was under water for a week or more. By the time the water receded, that fine red Louisiana sand was in everything . Emulsion on the slides was all but gone, scripts bound in masses of galumph and so on. It was all destroyed.
