Sgt. Albert J. Lamoureux: Biography

I grew up in Hicksville, New York, in a house that was almost directly under the flight path of Grumman Aviation's main runway. I suppose that this was the catalyst that set me on the path to a lifelong fascination with aviation. In my high school yearbook, next to my photo, I stated that my future plan was to join the United States Air Force, which I did, after my college days. It was something that I will always remember, as the challenges were many, and the opportunity to serve my beloved country is embedded in my heart forever.  I chose aircraft electronics as my career path, for I knew that when I completed my obligation to the Air Force, this was to be my future in the civilian workforce.
After basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, I was enrolled into the aircraft avionics course at Chanute Air Force Base, in Rantoul, Illinois. There, I spent many hours learning electronics, both basic and advanced, and aircraft flight control systems.Upon graduation from Chanute, I was transferred to Dow Air Force Base, in Bangor, Maine. There, I was assigned to the 75th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, where I primarily serviced F-101B and T-33A aircraft. My next, and final duty station, was Duluth Air Force Base, Duluth, Minnesota. While there, under very austere winter conditions, I serviced a variety of aircraft, including the F-106A, C-47, C-54 and U-3. I also trained at the on base SAGE compound, for the Phi-Chem-Bi technical and broken arrow nuclear preparedness teams.
I ended my four year tour in the Air Force after attaining the rank of sergeant.
