/////// About Operation Creek Party ////////
"1967 saw the beginning of Operation Creek Party. This operation provided air refueling support to United States
Air Forces in Europe tactical aircraft through the rotation of ANG aircrews and aircraft flying from Rhein Main Air Base,
Germany This operation, which continued until 1975, demonstrated the ability of the ANG to perform significant day-to-day
missions without being mobilized."
