I read in a recent B-52 Strat. Association news letter that there were enlisted EW/Observers in the early days of the B-52 crew force. As a former B-52G/H EWO I am curious about these early crewmembers. Can anyone tell me how long the enlisted EW/Obs. were in the crew force and why the position was switched to a rated position? Are there any of the old enlisted EW/Obs in the Association? Thanks.
