Quoting 747400sp (Thread starter): I know I am in the Navy, but I do not know were I can see a lot of E-6B Mercury's. I saw one at NAS North Inland for a visit, but I just want to know where most of them are base at.
VQ-3, VQ-4 are based at Tinker AFB, but are often forward deployed to:
Offutt AFB, Nebraska
NS Rota, Spain
Travis AFB, California
Hickam AFB, Hawaii.

Patrick AFB in Cocoa Beach is one place where an amazing assortment of aircraft can be seen including the E-6 when it transits from the south. They also have an incredible mix of C-130 special birds. Antennas hanging off of every surface, almost a flying porcupine sometimes...Just sit in the lineup at 2nd Light and you can see everything come right in over your head at 50 feet...tasty waves, tasty aircraft, a combo that is hard to beat IMO

It's that as a former SWO type I still like to make fun of "brown shoe pukes".
That explains a lot.
(now a brown shoe puke)
It's ok, don't feel to bad, it's an honest living. Just like civies need garbage men, the Fleet needs someone to do the dirty, non-intelectual jobs, like.....hauling cargo, flying an E-2, or scouting ahead for the Fleets strike force (DDG's, CG's, SSN's).
I'm sure that even in their dissapointment, your folks still love you!
