    Trying to find out what FLT I was in during basic. (Oct 4 – Nov 1968).

    There is an earlier post from a person that is disgruntled because their BMT photo submission was not posted in the BMT photo archive. My experience has been nothing less that stupendous. I took extreme care to scan the entire photograph in sections at the very highest resolution permitted. I then stitched the individual sections into one large photo using Photoshop Elements. I then kept adjust the file size, using Elements to get it within the limits they require.
    When I emailed it to the repository web site, it was posted and available for viewing the next day. I believe it was because of the extra care I took in building that file. They did not have to do any additional editing.
    Also, perusing the other photos, I noticed there a many photos that are missing names and also many that are unreadable because the submitter did not take the necessary steps to insure it would be readable when zoomed to examine the names, etc.
    You may see the results of my effort by viewing my BMT photo: 1965 Sqdn 3703 Flt 249.

    In the summer of 1966 I went to Lackland and was placed in the barracks of staff sgt. Hiller and Airman Wood. I had a back injury that I thought was healed but indeed was not. I was on sick call so much that the doctors all knew me by name. I imagine that I drove the T.I.S crazy because I was gone so much and no one ever notified Sgt. Hiller that I was sent to the hospital, nine times out of 10. Sgt Hiller was a great t.i. and I wish I could have stayed with him . This was at the height of the Viet Nam war and there were plenty of people really pulling any stunt to get out. With me, that was not the case but proving it was hard to do. I got set back twice and spent a few weeks in c.c. I wish I could say that all was good but it quickly began to take it’s toll. I forced myself through my last flight, got my stripe and it was then that I was sent to Air police training. It was also there that I re injured that back but since I had a stripe, the doctors were a little kinder than they had been. I think the doctors at Wilford Hall hospital were agast at the shape my back was in and wondered how I had lasted as long as I had in the Air Force. I was given an honorable medical dis charge and shipped home and given the number 1-Y, MEANING i COULD BE CALLED BACK IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. I am now 4-f. I am 67 years old now and living in retirement in Anahuac,Texas after working menial jobs for all of my adult life. No company doctor would pass my physical. Just wanted to let anyone from that flight, I believe it was 2290 that I had surgery on my back in Houston,texas, in 1987. The doctor was the best in his field in houston, and put my spine back together and later told me that i stayed awake while they operated and just one slip of the scapel and I’d be in a wheel chair for life. Thankfully such was not the case.It ABOUT DID A PHYSICAL AND MENTAL JOB ON ME. RAYBOURNE R. GUPTON, L.A.F.B. 1966-67.
