He re-upped for her (Sally) and a promise of OCS. Sally & Bob married in 1960 and headed for Lackland. In April, 1961, Lt. Davis moved to Harlingen for navigator training, followed by school at Mather AFB, CA for EWO training. Then it was B-52 training at Castle and on the Seymour Johnson AFB, NC as an Electronic Warfare Officer on "Buffs." He PCS'ed to Westover in 1967 and flew lots of missions in SEA. "...about 140 missions out of Andersen, Kadena and Utapao. Bob went to Eielson AFB, AK in 1969 in RC-135S "Cobra Ball." Maj Davis was selected for ACSC in 1972. Career broadening meant personnel school and assignment to Sheppard -- and a tour as Club Officer! Bob was more than glad to return to the cockpit 2 years later.

He and Sally play golf a couple times a week and are active in civic and church work. He also is currently working as a volunteer with with the Wheels On Meals program and at the Elder Services Center locally -- and something about being a "noles" fan? And, oh yes, two children and 9 grandchildren.
