Rustic Roster

This roster contains the names of personnel who are known to have served with the Rustics, but it is, by no means, complete. Some individuals may have been overlooked due to faulty memories, and the fact that the Air Force did not keep permanent personnel records, by unit. Information which is unknown has been left blank.

If you know any Rustic personnel who should be added to this roster, please contact one of the Rustic Database Keeper listed on the Rustic FAC Association's website: >If you desire to reach someone listed below, I will act as a locator service for you. Please email me at: Rustic20@cox.net and I will make contact with the individual you are seeking and let them know you are looking for them.
