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.
