QEric Hohman, the First There Foundation Founder, recounts his first deployment as an Air Force Combat Controller (CCT).
Our mission is to ensure all Combat Controllers have a teammate to reach out to when life becomes difficult. We know first-hand what it feels to be forgotten, lost, and or have lost a loved one. We will provide mental, financial, career, and or substance abuse assistance for the Combat Controller.
Some of the military’s most difficult missions are carried out by Combat Controller (CCT) specialists who operate in remote, often hostile areas. Acting as a one-man attachment to other special forces teams, these highly specialized Airmen are trained in a wide range of skills, including scuba, parachuting, and snowmobiling, as well as being FAA-certified air traffic controllers in order to establish air control and provide combat support on missions all over the globe.
