    KSB: I hated every f*cking second of being in Biloxi, Mississippi. This was back right after Viet Nam and any drunk inbreed hick would just look for an excuse to pick a fight. They used to (and I think still do) have a bumper sticker that says, "Keep Biloxi Beautiful, Kill an Airman". F*ck Biloxi, Mississippi.
  14. U.S. Air Force: 1958- 1986; 27 years active duty.

    Germany - 2 tours


    Washington D.C. area - 3 tours

    California - 2 tours


    Greece, Italy; extended TDYs

    Mili, you can say that again and again and again. I was there from Apr 66 to Nov 66 and when you went off base you had to go in groups or else the local yocals would be driving around looking for anyone by themselves. Wouldn't bother me at all if Biloxi became part of the Gulf. I was never so happy to leave any one place like I was that one.
