KABEL FEST 2005 Article from itercom magazine Information compiled by CMSGT Jack Davis
TSGT Jimmy Gallen (pictured on the left) is from the 270 EIS. He worked on-site engineering issues and later worked on one of the teams. MSGT Kevin Eisenhauer (pictured on the right) from the 211 EIS did the engineering for the project. He stayed on for part of project on the initial rotation. Kevin did a great engineering job on a difficult project.
In the left picture is David Jalufka and Lynnet Riley from the 216 EIS. Detachment 1 at Kapaun supplied some tools and all the vehicles for the project. Jalufka and Al Purisima did a tour at the Det to help them in suport of this project. Lynnet Riley worked with the project management team at Ramstein providing administrative and IM support
Captain Tom Bischoff, from the 218 EIS (In the right picture) deployed with Chief Beavers and I on the initial site visit to set up the warehouse, make billeting arrangements for the team and ensure the project was ready to go.
MSGT Eddie Haffer ( 216 EIS): At one point in the project we split one person from each team to form an extra team. Eddie was the team chief for this team. Eddie did a great job on a couple of difficult buildings.

TSGT Purisima did a tour at Det 1 in support of this project and Annette McClain provided IM support for the management team. Chief Beavers and I were the project managers. Lance Davis worked supply in the warehouse on the management team and did all the heavy lifting (ass kicking) for the management team. TSGT Bryan Morgan was on the CE team originally but we snagged him to help work building access and digging permit issues. He managed to help the CE team do a lot of core drilling when we didn't have him helping us. MSGT Lorenzo Wilkerson is a great team chief from the 202 EIS.
When we first arrived in Germany our C-5 got diverted to Rhein Mein. We ended up there with a fully loaded C-5 worth of cargo and about 50 troops. We managed to get the troops to Ramstein on buses but our cargo had to be delivered by truck. When we took this picture we asked the truck drivers to join us. They worked hard helping us unload 7 semi tractor trailer trucks in the snow.

Grace worked on Eddie Haffer's team. Floyd Lance and Rick worked supply issues for the project. That was quite a task supplying 7 cable teams with materials every morning. These guys spent every morning making sure the teams had what they needed while trying to keep track of inventory.
I'm sure all you EI troops know Isabel Kuhl in this picture. We had lunch with Isabel almost every week while on this project.
Ken Hefner, Timme Davis and Romeo Peralta deployed to do a tour with Isabel at the Det in support of this project.
