Looking for Dyess Team members

Former members (60s and 70s) of the Dyess, Travis, & Dover AFB Teams: I would normally ask this of Clyde Howard or of "Moe" Lattimore: however, since they ,evidentially, are no longer with us- any of you who may remember James M. ( Jack ) Jackson (the NCO who came to Dyess from Webb AFB or from Mather AFB to Travis or from Andrews AFB to Dover. Sgt  Howard  I knew from Travis and Udorn, Thailand and North from both Dyess and Dover all for the purpose of jumping with  you ( I taught escape parachuting to air crew members ). I can't recall all the names of all the others. I, at the time, was a Physiological Training Instructor (now called Aerospace Physiology). I later became a member of the team at Dyess. I made some good friends among you and would like to establish contact with any of you whom I knew. Especially the guys at Udorn who gave me such a rousing evening when I dropped in on Clyde in 72 or 73 when I was coming through to make a jump with Mitrapab the next day.

PTSD Study of Twins

My twin and I just participated in this research and we are the 'youngest' to have done so.  All the others were Viet Nam veterans with twins. Basically, Massachusetts General Hospital has been doing a long term research project on PTSD.  They have made several strides in identifying and treating PTSD by doing in-depth studies on twins: one who has been in combat and one who hasn't.  They are looking for a lot more folks to continue the research.  They pay for the trip to Boston and pay for the time of the participants.  Hopefully we have some in the career field who can help out all vets by contributing to the research.  If there are any questions, interested parties can feel free to contact me directly at

"True Leadership: Leadership Lessons Inspired by the Apostle Paul"

"Leadership is influence. Leadership is making things happen. Leadership is about influencing people toward accomplishing an objective or task. Good leadership means the followers 'want' to do what the leader wants them to do. Leadership is inspiring people to do more than they think they can. True leadership encapsulates all that is good about leadership. True leadership glorifies God, edifies others, and builds His Kingdom."

And so begins "True Leadership: Leadership Lessons Inspired by the Apostle Paul", a new book released by Vinnie Venturella.

Venturella is the incoming Chair of the Board of Directors for the Fayetteville Regional Chamber, and sits currently on the board as chair of the Finance Committee. The retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant also works for First Citizens Bank on Fort Bragg.

Three Air Force Special Operations Command combat controllers from the 21 Special Tactics Squadron were recognized for actions downrange in a medals ceremony at Pope Field, N.C., Sept. 25.

One year position in Djibouti.

Airfield Management Analyst:

      This position supports CLDJ N3 Airfield operations. Advisor to the Operations Officer on safe airfield operating conditions. Works closely with the Public Works Department in all phases of programmed airfield construction and responsible for the coordination of airfield construction and maintenance projects to include runways, taxiways, aircraft parking ramps and lighting systems. Provides assistance for airfield improvement activities such as airfield surface repair, painting programs and work crews. Plans, inspects, and directs airfield improvements, repairs, and continuing operations. Keeps the Operations Officer and Air Operations Officer informed of all upcoming projects, as well as the status of ongoing projects. Briefs maintenance and airfield personnel on airfield operations as well as the proper use of radios and basic communications procedures. Coordinates with the Djiboutian airfield authority on all matters that affect the commercial airport.


      So, basically it’s an Airfield Operations position.  I know you’re pretty well situated right now but my first thoughts are about reaching out to the CCT and AFSOC community and thought you might have a good POC.  The position does require a Bachelor’s and 5 years of relevant experience but that should not be an issue with your old community. 


      Let me know if anyone comes to mind and don’t hesitate to forward this e-mail if you  think it might get some traction!

Standard radio transmission language in combat operations

I'm a Ph.D. research computer scientist consulting for a small Washington D.C. company who builds military radio simulators. We want to incorporate speech recognition and transcription into our line of radio sims, and specifically want to incorporate the usual "nine-line" phraseology used by forward air controllers and close air support personnel into a customized language model.

To do this, we need 2 things:
1. A knowledgeable and experienced consultant who can guide us and give us the details about the phraseology involved, and/or 2. Recordings of tens of thousands of sample radio transmissions, transcribed or not, of typical phraseology used in this domain.
If you know of anyone who can help us achieve our objective here, I would appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks in advance,
--Bob Wesson
