Dedicated to the men and women of the USAF Security Forces/Security Police who were active members of the Emergency Service Teams; to those who were EST Field Supervisors and helped trained numerous teams that supported high risk operations on and off Air Force installations and in support of other agencies.
To that small group of instructors who put us through the paces and gave us the confidence to train other teams... "We Salute You!"

Defenders have guarded the B-29s that dropped Little Boy and Fat Man, patrolled Kimpo Air Base in the bitter cold, hunted VC outside Pleiku, escorted convoys throughout Afghanistan and Iraq, and of course performed law enforcement missions in every corner of the world. -----------It’s time to tell some of those stories.

Historical Photo from Patrick AFB EST Circa 1979

WHAT IS SO HISTORIC ABOUT THIS PICTURE?  WELL...first of all, MSgt Hoard, the top row far left, is basically considered a "Founding Father" of the Air Force Security Police SWAT teams.  He was training and running an Air Force SWAT team before the TNT/EST concept was developed in 1978, according to SMSgt Tom Herbert, original concept writer and Course Chief of the first TNT School at Camp Bullis in 1979, who gives much credit to MSgt Hoard.  This photo was posted on our Facebook EST page by David McCuen, who is in the 2nd row, second from the right between the two young Lady Operators at that time. 
This photo should be in the SF Museum and we hope to do just that.

David's comments to the photo:
EST Team @ Patrick AFB, FL circa 1979 under leadership of MSgt Eugene Hoard (Far Left). Squadron Commander Major Amick on the far right. I am on the bottom row second from the right with Cathy O'Connor to my left. Also in pic is Penny Ridley & Michael Albach. Other names unfortunately escape me.

Thank you David for posting it.
