Tents being constructed by the 3202d Civil Engineering Squadron.
As waves of refugees poured into Eglin Air Force Base during the mass Cuban exodus, units and personnel from Eglin provided humanitarian support to the refugees. Eglin chaplains greeted the refugees, provided religious services, and organized a clothing collection drive at the request of General Chapman that collected over 60 tons of clothing.
