We will be visiting Boston this summer. I was in the USAF but separated as a captain after 4 years. My wife and I lived on a base in the Boston metro and we would like to visit for nostalgic reasons, and I wouldn't mind having my teenaged son have a look at it to see if it would interest him. After calling the base and the local VA, it would seem this is not possible unless I am a retiree or disabled veteran, unless I have a sponsor there. It has been 20 years since I separated so everyone I would know is long gone. If we are SOL I totally get it, but it would seem after serving 4 years there it might be possible. Thoughts? Tagging @SSG T and @alaskanseminole they seem like they might know the ropes... TIA!
