is a short story about Jakober.
were on a TAC EVAL, he was at Groß Sachsenheim. There he set up a fire in a
trash an, just o see the fire fighting procedures. But he did that in the
Launching area, near an oil reservoire. Well, the crew got an EX in fire
fighting and Jakober was grounded 6 month for any TAC EVAL. As you know, you
must give all fire producing things, like matches ect. to the guard.
was back at GAFTAC I had to see our Commanding General, he wanted to have a
clear report about Jakober and his foolish action.
your knowledge, GAFTAC was stationed at Köln Wahn.
