    A few years ago, 2 Combat Controllers noticed that CCT reunion participation was declining. The annual CCT reunion in Fort Walton, Florida discontinued and Nashville, Tennessee numbers were declining. At the same time, the Vegas reunion was having increased participation. Minimal CCT participation came from the NE region.

    They decided to establish a CCT reunion in Atlantic City that would be similar to the Vegas format. Their objective was to provide an environment that allows Combat Control Team brothers & their families to reconnect with each other.

    Reunions allow veterans to rekindle past friendships, and heal from past experiences together. It allows retirees, active duty and also groups such as Gold Star Families to learn more about their family members through shared stories and photos. These gatherings have a therapeutic benefit for attendees. Especially those suffering from PTSD.

    This event was scheduled at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. (Oct – 13 thru 16 Thursday - Sunday). The event was named Atlantic City 2022 CCT Rally Point on the Boardwalk.

    Activities included Golf, Group Cruise, Range time (pistol, rifle, shotgun, archery), and Banquet with a Keynote Speaker. Living History interviews were recorded with several Combat Controllers to collect CCT stories that represent our heritage and history.

    Added bonus included boardwalk, beach, restaurants and outlet shopping.

    The event was a tremendous success. The Rally had 54 participants. We thank all who attended our first annual Atlantic City Rally!

    Leader, Friend and Advocate Major General Robert B. Patterson recently passed away.

    A recognized leader in the Military Airlift Command (predecessor to the Air Mobility Command) and tactical airlift, General Patterson assumed command of the newly established Air Force Special Operations Command in April 1987. He retired in 1989 as an untiring champion for the air and ground forces that comprised Air Force Special Operations.

    General Patterson was a Command Pilot with more than 9,000 flying hours and 293 combat hours. His military decorations and awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, Air Medal with three oak leaf clusters, Joint Service Commendation Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm.

    For the Combat Control and Special Tactics Community, we recognize General Patterson as a friend and early advocate for our growth and development as an Air Force combat capability and our contribution to the nations Special Operations Forces. The General was Combat Control Association Lifetime Member.

    General Patterson’s family will honor and bury him in a private ceremony this week.

    Those who served with Major General Bob Patterson will likely remember his genuine respect, warmth and commitment for the troops.

    General, thanks your pioneering leadership. RIP. Pressing on to meet you on the high ground.
