Got to take my first ride in a airplane today. It was a KC-135 and we got to refuel some F-15's. I got to go the tail and watch a refueling of one. Really cool experience for a first time fly. We flew for about 3 hours and went up to 21,000ft I believe.

Fly out of McGuire? Langley F-15s?
Just few minutes ago I was listening to a McGuire KC-10, callsign Opec-48 refueling a C-130 with the callsign Baton-20.

Isn't that a F-16 in the pic, not a F-15?

No Air Force for me Corporal. For the picture i just googled KC-135 and randomly picked one haha. Also got to go in the cockpit while up in the air.
We flew out of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in NC. Takeoff was around 11:45am and landing 2:15pm. It was a very cool experience and a good learning one. It was also neat watching the F-15's take off. I cant really remember the call sign but I know it was like Bsomething-14. These guys gave us the smooth ride.

BACKY is the callsign for the 77th ARS. I hear those guys on the radio too sometimes. Back in '01 I flew some missions over Afghanistan in a converted KC-135.
