    Hi S*M*A*R*T members, I’m Bob, USAF Retired. I’ve been retired since Nov 94 and working full time since then. I’ve been RVing since 2011 during vacations, but will be traveling more around the country when I retire from my second career in another year or so.

      Steve & Debbie Weishaar My current military installations book shows 270-798-2175. If that's the # you tried, I'd suggest calling the main installation # which shows is 270-798-2151
