Tactical Air Command ... I know what Tac Air is and what it can do, but what kind of work does Tactical Air Command do? What is/was your mission? Not being cute, just want to know.

Certainly, we were one of two Air Guard units at the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport.
We had the A-7 Corsair II fighter-bombers and the 171st had the KC-130's (Air Refuelers). After we returned from the sandbox in May 1991 my unit was disbanded, and everyone merged with the 171st.

For the war, the cops and the medics were activated from the 112th. In Egypt, we guarded KC-135's (but we were under SAC not TAC if that makes any sense). We were the last stop between Germany and Saudi. I don't think that the Air Force has a TAC anymore, I believe that all merged with SAC. I was a "buck sergeant" E-4 too. The AF got rid of that rank after 1991.

At about that same time that we got home was my ETS (although I stayed in the IRR for two years). :)

Cool ... a piece of our force structure that I didn't know existed. I knew about the KC130s, but never gave it much thought.

Good to know ya!
