First, thank you for your service.
Second, welcome to the forum.
Third, we pulled into Fairchild on Aug. 26, and stayed a week. Nice FamCamp.

Lastly, I would like to apologize to the Air Force, Army, and Navy personnel. I'm so sorry ya'll never joined "the military." (Couldn't resist, really just couldn't resisit.)

Okay, so it wasn't really "lastly." You are in a nice location there at Fairchild. Nice jumping off point for many interesting places. If you head East for about 900 miles, Ellsworth AFB is another nice place to stop and see Rushmore, Badlands, Custer State Park, and many other interesting areas. Take a few more days off of a long weekend and have fun.

Again, thank you for your service.
