Our Top 3 organization is putting together an AFSOC ring. It is kind of pricey estimated costs are $550 to $650. Attached is the basic graphics and 3-d of the proposed ring. If they get 10 people who are interested and are willing to buy then they will go to the next step of production.

Currently there are 4 who have said they would buy them. Thought this would be something you all might like.

If so, please let me know.

Thank you

CCT Historical Blog

The CCT Historical Blog has been updated and re-formatted on WordPress. It is not yet perfect, but is getting better.

Update at the following link:

In addition, I am looking for stories from those across the entire CCT Spectrum - from 1953 to today.

Newspaper clippings can be quoted, * official government documents can be copied in total, * war stories will be told - with proper warning, but* photos will be reserved for future use. (I don't have enough space on WORDPRESS).

My long-term goal is to transplant the information from the Blog to the CCA or CCSA website. At that time, I hope to add lots of photos.

See you all at the reunion.
