Let’s get some things straight if I may :We all hope this is true and times have changed. I can say first hand that while working in avionics hydraulic systems both for commercial & military there was some crazy drug use, even on the final assembly test line.
1. If you were a Hydro guy in military aviation you were as useless then as they are now ( that’s why the military is getting rid of that MOS )
2. You guys were most likely detail or borrowed military man power as actual mechanics ( 15T, 15 U a d 15R) would do most of the hydro stuff ( and still do) except struts
3. You must of worked in Vietnam in the 60’ because I already had 4 random drug tests this year ( one actually got me out of the PT test and saved me from running two miles that morning- only God and an urinalysis test can do that, so I was happy about that one)
4. There are cases of guys using drugs but they don’t last very long in the military as you have to work out in squad or platoon formation, interact with superiors every day and most times spend at least 12 hours in the company of other military members. Good luck not getting caught
