Below are links to some of George’s past writings about POWs and other military topics, ranging from special operations and deployed locations to a tornado, GPS and words to make you think or smile.

  • When Bill Baugh retired from civil service in 1991, George wrote this moving tribute to him for the base newspaper at then-Falcon Air Force Base, Colorado. It was part of trio of articles that won the Thomas Jefferson Award for editorials and commentaries in the 1991 Department of Defense Media Contest.

  • Another 1999 piece goes inside the “Hanoi Taxi,” the first aircraft to fly POWs out of Vietnam during 1973’s Operation Homecoming.

  • While editor of Air Force Space Command’s one-time official magazine, Guardian, George wrote this 1993 article that may be the first story anywhere about putting GPS into a person’s hand.  Years later, at Airman Magazine, he’d write about GPS again, and how it would survive the impending “doom” of Y2K

  • During the Spring and Summer of 1998, George was deployed to Al Jaber Air Base in Kuwait, where he lightened moods with a twice-monthly humor column in the remote desert base’s newspaper.

  • George returned to Kuwait with Airman, where he reported from a remote base a short drive from Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

  • George covered more than military operations at Airman. When a tornado struck Oklahoma City and nearby Tinker Air Force Base, he wrote from the wreckage.

  • He also spent time with the Air Force’s special operations forces, writing about the hard road followed by Combat Controller trainees, and the airborne Tactical Air Controllers that bring air support to the Army’s 82nd Airborne. The TACPs of the Air Force’s 14th ASOS gifted George one of their logoed black hoodies that he still wears and treasures today.
