Correction
Apparently there is a limit on the number of photos that can be placed in the slide show above. It only took (and shows) 100 of the 164 photos. I'll try converting them into an .AVI or .WM . . .  Continued

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Kenny Austin


After graduation I went to SFA to study forestry. Almost finished it except a little debacle called Vietnam got in the way. When I got my draft notice, I knew I didnít want to go into the Army and become cannon fodder so I raced over to the Air Force recruiter. There was a waiting line 9 miles long but with the amount of college I had he put me at the front of the line. I enlisted on 18-Jan-1966. When it came time to re-up, I decided to make the Air Force a career but knew I needed to finish college. The AF sent me back to SFA and I finished my forestry degree and was assigned to Officer Training School. Upon completion of that I was assigned to a missile combat crew as a Missile Combat Crew Commander Ė you know, the guy with his finger on the little red button ready to nukem till they glowed!! I actually had the honor of launching a long range LGM30F Minuteman II ICBM on 1-Feb-77 from Vandenberg AFB, CA (warhead removed of course!). While on missile combat crew, I finished my Master's degree from the University of Northern Colorado. After four years on a missile combat crew, I transitioned over to the management engineering career field (the Air Forceís efficiency experts) for the next 8 years. I retired in 1987 after 22 years of service.

I signed on with Temple Inland as an operations research analyst assigned to their Applied Research Center in Diboll. Retired from there (early) after 10 years.

Have been enjoying retirement ever since. I drug Sarah Jane, my bride of 46 years all over the U.S. My kids are scattered to the wind so I donít get to see my grandkids that often. We have Johnny (1993), Elizabeth (1993), Blake (1989), and Josie (2000). Sarah Jane and I travel a lot and are enjoying retirement.
