Our Contribution To Success
By: Jerry Barker

While going thru some old military stuff, I found this patch that we received at Clinton-Sherman AFB in 1964 after the wing won the Bombing Competition.    The consensus was that as we required precision inputs from AMS in the way of Velocity East and Velocity North as well as Range North and Range East, that the Bomb Nav system was required to perform with more accuracy to meet the Hound Dog requirements and avoid blinking A/N no go lights, which lead to helping them win the Bombing Competition.   

Do You Remember?

Is This a Clinton Sherman Tradition?

Do You Remember These?




As I recall the oval AMMS  patch was     worn on our hats. The 70th AMMS patch on our shirts and field jackets opposite the name tag.

 It seems to me that the C/S Team Chief  and Flight Line Team Chiefs got the master team chief patch just before the Master Technician Patch was authorized and then were no longer authorized to wear it.

I'm a bit hazy but it seems like we had   white coveralls or were they blue to wear with these and adorned them with a neck scarf when MSET or other dignitaries were present for a C/S run
