These photos were sent in by Gilbert (aka LIMA 1) Garcia, depicting his training days with the SORT that he was assigned to; these were taken at a "great place" to train in Virginia. Well... at least most of us think it's a great place to train. In the photo below... yea...that's Lima 1 in the middle. Gil gave over 6 1/2 years to the teams... hoorah Gilberto! And thanks for sending the pics and you know how much "pride" I feel when I see you in "black!" You've done good!
As quick background on Lima 1, he served with the USAF in Security Forces, assigned to Howard AFB, Panama, where he worked as an SP Investigator and SP Liaison... '82-'91. Gilbert was involved in many of the pre and post war efforts for Operation Just Cause. The irony of this all, is that he once told me he just didn't see himself doing E.S.T. ops... "wrong!!" Gilberto! Operator!
Gil currently is still serving... a Lieutenant, as Emergency Preparedness Officer, DOJ, FBOP.You make us proud!
