Abstract : From August 1990 through May 1992 I was the commander of the Air Force's smallest and only remote tour operational support airlift (OSA) unit: Detachment 3, 1403d Military Airlift Squadron (Det 3, 19th Airlift Squadron after 1 April 1992) under the Military Airlift Command (MAC). Based at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, the detachment operated two C-12F Hurons with seven officers (all pilots including myself), three enlisted support personnel, and three civilian maintenance contractors. The unit primarily provided OSA to Seventh Air Force units in Korea, but also supported other Air Force and Department of Defense (DOD) organizations in Korea and throughout the Far East. pg12. JMD
