Hi All

Although on-line for a while now, wanted to promote it here. I have the units section far enough along for it to be useful. See link below. But would like some help identifying units that I have missed.

Thanks!

You can also add 773rd TAS which was part of the 463rd TAW at Dyess.

Was it active duty when based at Dyess?

At one time Dyess had three squadrons of C130's. The 772nd, 773rd, and 774th.

Yeah, your right, infact even more history than that being active prior to being at Dyess with the C-130.

I have all three squadrons noted above in the units section, but have 773rd under the AFRC section. Really need to list in both AFRC and AMC.

Thanks and any help for the units section is greatly appreciated. Especially missing patches.
