Deployed many times to Seymour Johnson AFB; NC, North Field, S.C. Was Radio Ops Supt. twice at the Mob and last time 5th Combat. Also was at Robins in the 37th Comm. from January 1955 to January 1958. Married a girl from Macon in 1955, and we are still together. Retired as a CMSgt May 1st 1980. First Commander of the Mob when I got there in 1970 was Col. Joe Soloman. I cannot remember my Commanders in 1972 or 1979/1980 but both were great guys and fine commanders. I was always proud to be a member of the 5th, one of the best organizations in AF. Always Ready to go and do the job.

Comments: 5CBCSS/CC & 5CCG/CD, 1999-2001. Would not have traded this assignment for anything. Great mission, great people! Retired from the Joint Staff in 2006, and have worked in defense since then. For those who knew my wife, Peggy, I'm sorry to say that she passed away in Dec 2015 after a long fight against cancer. She was the ultimate supporter of the troops through her 20 years of military volunteerism.
