I started this QT Folds of Honor fundraising campaign as a way to say, “THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE” to The 55th Electronic Combat Group based on Davis Monthan Air Force Base right here in my hometown of Tucson, Arizona.
Why am I choosing to honor the 55th Electronic Combat Group specifically?
Well, several reasons...
1. ‘5’ is my favorite number. (“It's five plus five, not rocket science…”)
2. The 55th Electronic Combat Group works on ‘unique technologies’ I am VERY MUCH interested in learning more about.
3. As a coincidence, I designed this “High Fives” T-Shirt back in 2006 when I was attending graphic design classes at Pima Community College. The thing is, I probably wouldn’t have started college, or even finished high school if it hadn’t been for a special man who came into my life when I was 15. My stepfather was a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force, and later taught Aviation Technology at Catalina Foothills High School, and Pima Community College. He helped me in ways I could never pay back. He listened to me. He encouraged me. He supported me. He taught me how to drive. He loved me. Thanks to him, and the GI Bill, I’m the person I am today.
What does the 55th Electronic Combat Group do?
The 55th Electronic Combat Group provides combat-ready EC-130H Compass Call aircraft, crews, maintenance and operational support to combatant commanders. The group also plans and executes information operations, including information warfare and electronic attack, in support of theater campaign plans. Members of the 55th ECG conduct EC-130H aircrew initial qualification and difference training for 20 aircrew specialties and support operational and force development testing and evaluation for new aircraft systems.
