This got me to thinking after seeing Boss 302's thread about a new round of BRAC closures. Here's my list and time on station:
Laredo AFB, TX - 72-73
Chanute AFB, IL - 73 -74
Utapao RTNAB, Thailand 74-75
RAF Bentwaters, UK, 77-79
Brooks AFB, TX, 79-83
Kelly AFB, TX, 85-88

The only bases left over from my time are Langley, Kunsan and Osan.

My Tech School at the time was Lowry AFB, between Aurora and Denver, CO. It closed in '94, IIRC.

The family and I drove around the grounds last August. About 4 out of every 5 bldgs are no longer standing, only concrete slabs, overgrown brush...and no fence!
I did find my old dorm bldg--boarded up, and some REALLY nice houses on what was the western side. The HQ Bldg was converted into apartments. Felt interesting being in a place I hadn't seen nor set foot in for the better part of two decades.

I drove around it in 2001 after being there in '75, school&flying out of it and the only thing that looked familiar was the 'Buff' some A$$CLOWN had torched!
