40th MAPS

40th MAPS History

The 40th MAPS was formed up in 1981 and inactivated in 1993.   The 40th MAPS moved to Wright-Patterson AFB and merged withe the 87th APS in April 1983.  A group lunch was held in August, 2012.   Below are links to show the pictures that were taken at the lunch.  I also included 200 pictures from Thom Conley.

40th History  Here is a short history of the 40th MAPS from formation to inactivation.  Thanks to Terry Thompson for sending me his copy of the closing ceremony.  This was the basis for recreating this history.
