No Pup Tents Here: Air Force civil engineers have been busy constructing about 28 more tents in Southwest Asia to house some 1,300 airmen arriving in January. This is not your backyard campout-style enterprise. Officials say each site requires a survey, including use of GPS satellite data to measure and place the stakes, trenches, electrical lines, and gravel and dirt for leveling and drainage. More than 25 airmen of the 379th Expeditionary Civil Engineer Squadron work on each site at a time.
