    Re: "Doc" Foglesong

    This thread stirred up some great memories and I went looking through old Stars and Stripes articles and saw one that claimed Doc had over 15 named programs during his tenure at USAFE. However, I could only recall 11 of them; does anyone know the names of missing four programs?

    I tried jump on the bandwagon back then and suggested that USAFE create a “Combat Combat” Program that called for precision bombing techniques because very tight bomb patterns always make such nicer aerial photographs. If there is anything that bugs me more it is a sloppy bomb pattern with craters spread out all over the place, it makes the aerial photographs look very unprofessional.

    Anyway, here is the list of Doc’s programs I came up with:

    Combat Proud
    Combat Education
    Combat Fitness
    Combat Flightline
    Combat Touch
    Combat Care
    Hidden Heroes
    Project CHEER
    Project Connect
    Power Plant Project
    Project SMART

    Combat Night Hawk or something like that - I think that was the one where SNCOs and officers had to make work center visits on night shifts. Not necessarily a bad thing, but since it was a Doc "Combat" program, it lost all cool-nest.

    Yes, the good old Combat Nighthawk program! How could I forget that one?

    Wasn’t there also a Chicken Hawk program? Wait! That was an AETC program at Lackland, never mind.

    Do we have a candidate to be the "new Doc Foglesong" of this generation?

    No, they're all afraid they will have a lengthy thread after them on MTF.

    There shouldn't have been a program necessary for that. If your unit conducts 24 hour operations it is just expected (or should be) that senior leadership will make visits to swing and mid shifts. Cops do that and always have.
