Our Squadron, 6913th Radio Squadron Mobile (RSM) was established in Bremerhaven,
 Germany in 1951 and dismantled 17 years later in 1968. Our service there was one of
the most exciting experiences of our lives and we still stay in contact with life-long
friends through our Biennial Reunions and this Internet Website.


June 1, 2012 marks the official retirement of Lt. Gen Craig Koziol and the end of an era
for the United States Air Force, as the service bids adieu to the last uniformed airman
who was once a part of the USAFSS, the original iteration of today's Air Force Intelligence,
Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Agency (AFISRA)
    Lt. Gen Craig Koziol

"I'm very proud to have been a member of USAFSS," said Koziol, who is stepping down
after 36 years in uniform as an intelligence officer. "I'll miss the professional camaraderie."


MISSION STATEMENT: - Our website is designed generally for people who have an interest in the activities and personnel assigned to units of the United States Air Force Security Service. It specifically responds to the interests of all those people who served in Bremerhaven, Germany, while assigned to the unit that was based there for some 17 years. The features of the website bring pleasure to all of the silent warriors, their family members, their friends, and all who wish to browse through our memories of past glory or work with us as we build new ones.
BRIEF UNIT HISTORY: - The 6913th Radio Squadron Mobile was originally activated as the 41st Radio Squadron Mobile at Brooks Air Force Base, Texas on 1 June 1951. It deployed to Bremerhaven, Germany in November 1951. It was redesignated the 6913th Radio Squadron Mobile on 8 May 1955, the 6913th Security Squadron on 1 July 1963, the 6913th Security Group on 1 October 1964, and Det 1 of the 6950th Security Group in July 1967. The unit was deactivated on 31 March 1968.
