Accounting for Air Force on Army Convoys
I was a Personnelist in the Air Force and was deployed to Balad Air Base, Iraq in 2004 to try to locate the first 2,000 Air Force that were Joint-Tasked to support the Army. Air Force Fire Fighters, Logistics Fuels, and Security Forces personnel had arrived to Camp Wolverine, Kuwait and were not accounted for by Air Force personnel. The Army met up with the Air Force troops and had them convoy to 7 different locations in Iraq. My duty was to fly in black hawk helicopters to those locations to obtain a copy of the Air Force personnel's orders and identify which Army battalion they were assigned to and where their location was in the Air Force MANPER-B classified system.
