Who am I?
The webmaster of this page is Tom Thweatt, a former member of the infamous 1611 AES. I was a Staff Sergeant in the Air Force, activatedáfrom the 118th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron in Nashville, TN from October 1990 to March 1991 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. First I was sent to work in the AECE control element as an admin specialist on Eskan Village up until February of 1991 where I became part of a C-130 crew (from Westover ARB)at KKIA(King Khalid International Airport) We flew in country missions from the Saudi/Iraqi border, over the Persian Gulf down to the Red Sea. Afterwards we were sent home on March 17, 1991. Anyone out there who was in Eskan, KKIA or ináthe 1611 AES I would like to hear from you as it seems everyone has disappeared.
