7 accs history 1
7 ACCS History (1)
  • The squadron was formed as the 7th Airborne Comand and Control Squadron (ACCS) in September 1965 at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, South Vietnam, flying the C-130 (later EC-130).
  • The 7 ACCS played an extremely important role in the conduct of air operations during the conflict in Southeast Asia (SEA) from 1965 through the cessation of operations in Cambodia in 1972. During the action in SEA, the squadron had a minimum of two aircraft airborne 24 hours a day directing and coordinating the effective employment of tactical air resources as an extension of the 7th Air Force Tactical Air Control Center (TACC) at Tan Son Nhut AB, South Vietnam.

  • Other accomplishments of ABCCC as 7th ACCS include the American student rescue operation in Grenada, Operation URGENT FURY (November 1983), the recovery efforts of Texas Congressman Mickey Leland (August 1989), and the invasion of Panama, Operation JUST CAUSE (December 1989).
  • The 7th ACCS deployed nearly 9000 miles in a matter of days in to the United Arab Emirates in support of Operation DESERT SHIELD. During Operation DESERT STORM the squadron directly supported the overall destruction of Iraqi ground units, SCUD missile sites, and other targets of interest, including the Republican Guard Forces.
  • In July 1993 the 7 ACCS deployed to Aviano Air Base, Italy, in support of the United Nations ground forces in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Operation DENY FLIGHT and subsequently Operation Joint Endeavor. During the summer of 1994, the men, women, aircraft and equipment of the ABCCC relocated to Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ. On 20 July 1994, the 7 ACCS stood down and became the 42 ACCS under the 355th Wing at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, AZ.
