Pros: all the friendships i made during my time in the air force
Cons: sometimes it required after hours, or vpn into the network from home to fix an issue.
I loved the Air Force! I loved my jobs as a Client Support Administrator, Client Support Administrator Instructor, Webpage Administrator/designer, Air Force Portal Administrator for all of ACC!! Because I did the Portal we were the first installation that got our Portal up and running!! So, the administrator for the Portal up at ACC gave me rights for all of ACC and made me the contact for all and any issues any Portal administrator had across all of ACC!! I was also the administrator in charge of designing and setting up the Microsoft Share Point for Moody AFB! I even enjoyed when I was part of the Security Forces during the first Gulf War! And even when I was put in charge of the security of the processing line during deployments and exercises. I loved being the briefer for the intel information just before the troops got on the planes.
Shortly before I retired I was the Lead Client Support Administrator on the installation. I was in charge of consolidating all the Client Support Administrators up under the Communications Squadron. I was the CSA that all the others on base would come to when they couldn't figure out an issue. I was the one that figured them out.
I have so many fond memories of the Air Force and many of them come from my last few years when I was working at the 23 Services Squadron and 23 Communications Squadron!
Then, the last 10 months or so I worked to design a CSA Quality Assurance Program from the ground up. No other base in ACC had done this and the program got adopted ACC wide!
