Roger and his twin brother Robert were highly respected air surveillance operators in the Connies at McClellan. I know Roger was with us in the beginning days of AWACS at Tinker; I cannot remember if Bob was too. Not to put him on the spot, but CMSgt Ed Gamble knew them both much better than I did.
