Abstract : The Eglin Refugee Processing Center at Auxiliary Field 2, Eglin AFB, Florida, came into existence as a direct consequence of the abrupt cessation of the US presence on 29 April 1975 in South Vietnam (Republic of Vietnam - RVN). Before the total collapse of the RVN, the US provided the means for Vietnamese employees of the US Government and US contractors and other Vietnamese to exit South Vietnam for the US. The establishment of the Eglin Refugee Processing Center as one of the four refugee centers in CONUS is chronicled to depict the planning, construction, operations, administration, and impact of Operation New Arrivals at Eglin AFB. Events and experiences encountered had both an ephemeral and permanent value. For that reason those events and experiences are discussed, analyzed, and critiqued to provide an overview of judicious interfacing of the integral parts of each function as they affected the whole. This approach was selected because it eliminated untoward functional or organizational competition, thus making it possible to answer in totality and with relevancy what exactly did the Air Force do. Phase I - The Buildup - covers the period from 27 April to 23 May 1975 and includes selected supporting documents at Tabs A to Tabs K and Photographs.
