Rob, tell us a story about one of your experiences.

Rob graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy and became a KC135 Stratotanker pilot.  During the last stages of his career, Rob was a “research” pilot.  His role was to test the planes beyond their standard protocol limits.


After leaving active duty, Rob flew commercial flights with American Trans Air out of Indianapolis.  Most of Rob’s flights were to the Middle East transporting military in to and out of combat assignments.  

On one flight, Rob was visiting the troops returning to their National Guard units in Kansas.  Then it hit him, “these are just kids” returning home from battle.  Wow!


Tell us about your experience in the T33.

Well, this is my story.
