There were two KC-135's leaving 5 minutes apart with roll calls at 1500. I arrianged for a taxi to pick us up at 0900hrs because the evening before one of the Show times changed to 1245 hrs. Taxi got us there about 1000hrs and the Show time had changed back to 1500hrs. So our weight in the terminal was a Long one.
Our daughter was on duty that day at Transit Alert and stopped by to visit with us twice.
Then roll call started and names call out and all were present. Another Person walked in and he was Young and looked like active duty. He was told he missed roll call and it was closed and all seats taken and he could travel on the second aircraft that had 10 seats and only 2 filled. I could have part of this wrong as I only got sections of the conversation as a few dependent spouses were flying with Little Kids and they were making noise.
Our aircraft was ready, our bags checked, and the bus out to the aircraft was ready for us too load. Then the 2nd aircraft decided to put extra fuel on. Then our crew decided to add fuel. So that added anhour or so delay.
Flight was nice. Crew put down the web strapping on son-in-law Chris talked about that would make sleeping easier, and then a crewmember layed a crew matress on it. Belinda slept quite awhile and I slep some time on our air mat.
The boomer invited me to sit in the cockpit during landing which I did. It was a very good flight.
We landed at Fairchild about 2030hrs and our friend Earl Hoal picked us up at the Pax Terminal on Fairchild and took us to the Spokane Airport and Enterprise Rental Car.
At 0430hrs I've been awake about 30 minutes and can't fall back to sleep. At the Hilton near the Spokane airport. Have our new rental car.

Diamondback: Wave returned, Mike, though different vintage--my grandfather was a Green Dragon around '65-'70ish including Osan; one of the last out of NATO Chateauroux and a lot of that planeload ended up posted at McChord.
