Charles Feld (Air Force)

Gender: Male
Birthday: 1933
Hometown: Iola, Kansas
Military Status: Veteran
Military Branch: Air Force
Military Rank: E-6
About Me:
Anticipating Bergstrom closure, and my retirement,
I started my own computer repair business in Round
Rock, Tx (just North of Austin).
So, it was a smoothe transition for me, when I retired. (Hated to see the base close, and not have military facilities, and friends close by).
I still have my little one man computer business,
with office about 150 feet from my house. My wife
likes to work at Wag-a-bag convenience store, which adjoins our back yard, and is directly across
the street from my office (about 45-50 feet).

Can you find a better retirement arrangement??

(well, for us poor people anyhow).
I have my car parked in front of my office, and
maybe drive it once every 2 or 3weeks.

I think this is one of the main reasons I have survived this long. I don't have to get on I-35
to drive to Bergstrom AFB every day. In fact, I
don't have to get on I-35 anymore, except when I
need to go buy computer parts, and that is not very often anymore, cause I am getting lazy, and
sending the "fix-it" business over to another computer repair place that is trying to get started.

They are trying to make a living off of this computer stuff. I'm just doing it as a hobby, and
a place to get away from the house, so I send the business to them...

Oh, yes, I have 2 grandkids now. Boy and girl.

4 yrs(girl), and 6 yrs (boy).

Still married (since Aug 1955), and looking for a better deal.

Closed my computer business 31 Dec 2000 and completely retired.


I retired from the AF, 15 Apr 1970, as the 15TH AF
Disaster Control Supt., at March AFB, Calif (SAC).

I got into Civil Service, at Kelley AFB, Tx,
in 1973. Starting as apprentise sheet metal
mechanic, on B-52.

Sept 1975, took Civil Service Disaster Preparedness Officer job at Ellsworth AFB, S.D.

(what a mistake).

Ended up at Bergstrom AFB. (1977-1993)

Started in Disaster Preparedness, as GS-9.

Retired from civil service as GS-9, in 1993, from
67 Civil Engineering Squadron, Bergstrom AFB, Tx,

when Bergstrom closed.
