Eglin Air Force Base is located in the "panhandle" of Florida, near Ft. Walton Beach. It is the largest U.S. Air Force Base, and one of it's primary functions is the testing of munitions and munitions delivery systems. For three years, beginning in 1978, I worked at Eglin as a civilian employee.
My first job at Eglin was at the SADS II Radar, where I worked for about a year before being transferred, at my request, to the Laser department.
