728th ACS faces decommissioning

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The 728th Air Control Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base will be decommissioned as a result of force structure changes. About 375 airmen are assigned to the squadron, which falls under the 552d Air Control Group at Tinker Air Force Base, Fla. Air Combat Command determined divesting the 728th is the most feasible option because it's not co-located with operational aircraft and live, air-to-air training opportunities are limited. The changes will take place Sept. 1. (Source: 96th Air Base Wing, 03/07/12)
