Excercise Bright Star 1985 in Egypt

Excercise Bright Star 1985

These photos were taken in 1985 during Excercise Bright Star 1985. The pictures are not of good quality but back then I was just an E-3 and couldn’t afford a good camera. The picture above is of our group coming from Offutt Air Force Base where I was stationed at.

The second picture is of me visiting the pyramids and had the privilege to ride a camel for the first time. Trust me when I tell you that camels are mean animals.

The third picture was taken from my balcony at the hotel we stayed in at the end of the exercise. Nice view Huh?
