I was in the squadron in 1976 as an airman basic operation specialist and worked for Lt Col Charles L Broadwell, now deceased . . I have the patch. I remember…J. Juarez.

Hello. I was a Loadmaster, in the 22MAS from 1972 to 76, and again from 1978 to 1983. I am writing about the flight I was on, and wondered if you have old flight orders. I kept a log of my flights, but it is so old it is hard to read and decipher. Also, I was one to two NCO Special Assigned Airlift Mission planners (SAAM) at Wing headquarters, from 1979 to 82. If you can be of any help, I would appreciate it.

Something Ironic. A patch was made called Albertus Maximun. My christen name is Albertus.


Unfortunately, we do not have any documents that could possibly support your inquiry. Sorry.

Regarding the Albertus Maximus patch, are you referring to this one?

The 22 MAS was at Tachikawa AB in the 60s. Flying C 124C to SEA.
