Comments: I was stationed there from November 1971 through June 1973. I was fortunate to be part of what then was called, "Talking Bird". The objective was to place the equipment on a C130 and fly where needed. My part, simply enlisted (29150 at the time). It was wonderful duty and good people to work with. Unfortunately I was to young to know how good I had it. Best wishes to all.

Comments: This was my first assignment after Keesler. Was there from Dec 75 to Aug 78. Remember the Big change from the 5th Mobile Comm Gp to the 5th Combat Comm Gp. Was a Tech Controller on the TAB, then the AFCH for a while, then engineering for a short stay before ending up in the NCMO. Lots of memories and was back plenty of times while assigned to the TRI-TAC test office in Ft Huachuca, AZ. Then the years I was a judge for the Combat Challenges. Through my entire 22+years active it seems the gators were always near. Thanks for holding up the traditions and I still have my challenge coins.

Comments: I was a 30770 assigned to the 5th 1980-1982. Came from s oversea remote tour and went on to a oversea remote tour. Spent 18 months either playing games in the South Training area or deployed. Deployments went from Egypt to New York, California, Florida and the Carolina's. Also several within Georgia itself. When in garrison spent time either in a trailer in the motor pool or over in a building not far from the supply buildings. Half the time I spent in the active players and half the time in the OPS Stan/Eval group.
