Taking a look back at the 932nd Troop Carrier Group excites newest historian

Master Sgt. Gerald Sonnenberg, the 932nd Airlift Wing's newest historian, enthusiastically reviews the 932nd's first original history report in the history office. Last year marked the 50th year of the 932nd's existence. The unit was constituted and activated on Feb. 11, 1963 as the 932nd Troop Carrier Group (Medium Reserve), and was comprised of the 73rd Troop Carrier Squadron (now the 73rd Airlift Squadron), as well as an assortment of other detachments of the 434th Troop Carrier Wing at Bakalar AFB, Ind. At that time, the unit flew the C-119 Flying Boxcar. The Group remained assigned to the 434th until October 1966 when the unit then was assigned to the 442nd Military Airlift Wing at Richards-Gebaur AFB, Mo., and prepared to welcome a new airframe--the C-124.
