Utilization tour selection will be the single biggest decision you make other than the monograph topic: ask the right questions. As an asset to the unit, you should be interested in more than the unit’s location. Several questions I wish I would have asked are:

- How do your G-5, G-3, and chief of staff see non-maneuver planners?
- Why does your unit want a logistics planner?
- Who was your last logistics planner, and what efforts did they lead?

Air Force Combat Control Teams are seeking an endowment of $100K to fund development activities ahead of the publication of its 1945 – 2020 history book. The goal is to reduce sales price to allow maximum participation of young airmen and families. In unofficial projects such as the book, the teams must work with the CCSHF, a donor funded 501 (C) 3 foundation charged with commercial contracting. For us, it is a huge appeal; but is thought to be a great investment in terms of preserving the remarkable history of the teams. The endowment will pay start-up fees to mitigate book prices of future sales. The premium publication will be in the format of a COFFEE TABLE BOOK. When completed It is expected to be about 750 pages; 10.5x14.5 in size; with an approximate weight equal to that of two reams of print paper. In addition, other formats are anticipated for training and recruiting functions by Air Force Education and Training Command. An eBook version for economical download and when requested it may be free for download by .mil customers. The DOD accredited CCSHF is unfunded and survives on donations from military and civilian supporters. Want more details? At 1. below you will find copious links and notes detailing CCSHF, including a donation link and at; 2. An example of a military style COFFEE TABLE BOOK. The completed history book manuscript was submitted on/or about 2/2/2021 to Rizzoli International Publishing in New York. 1. https://www.ccshf.org/eye-of-the-storm-vol-iii/ 2. https://www.amazon.com/U-S-Special-Operations-Forces-Foundation/dp/1435144554
