Craig C. Clifton (E-6)
After getting out of the United States Marine Corps in August 1974 and instead of returning to California I went to work in Mt Pleasant, SC (suburb of Charleston, SC)for the Police Department.
In 1976 I joined the United States Air Force Reserves at Charleston AFB, SC. I was in the 315th Military Airlift Wing working in the Avionics radio shop as a staff sergeant E-5 . The planes we had were the C141 Starlifter.
In 1979 I moved back to CA. Before I left I was promoted to Tech Sergeant E-6. Once back in CA and living near Reno, NV I transferred to the Nevada Air National Guard and worked the Avionics radio shop. The squadron was one of the best F-4 Photo Recon units in the entire Air Force. They now fly C-130 transport aircraft.
In 1981, I moved to San Jose, CA where I currently live. I transferred to the 129th ARRG, now known as the 129th Resue Wing. I worked Avionics QA until conflicts with my civilian job forced me to leave the Guard.
To say the least, my experience with the USAFR/ANG was very nice and completely different from my 4 year enlistment in the United States Marine Corps. BUT, I still hold most to my time in the USMC.Joint Base Charleston
