Keesler Air Force Base, Biloxi – Mississippi Mondays November 18, 2019

I had planned on heading back north with today’s post, but after learning of my brother-in-law’s death yesterday – Rest In Peace to My Brother-in-law, Dwight T., Retired USAF Veteran Died November 15, 2019, I decided to head south again as Dwight spent a lot of time at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Couple of disclaimers: I worked on Keesler briefly from 1988 – 1989 as part of MWR/NAF at Muse Manor. My father was stationed at Keesler AFB when he met my mother. A half-uncle by marriage was also stationed at Keesler when he met my half-aunt.

The base is named for Samuel Reeves Keesler, Jr.:
