Don: I am retired Bureau of ATF Special Agent Joe Ulery. I live in Pensacola.
On March 1, 1993, I contacted USCG at Opa locka to request air transport of the Miami ATF Special Weapons Team to Waco, Tx. Within an hour I was contacted back and told that a USCG C-130 would be diverted back to Opa-locka to pick up the team and fly them to Waco to assist the other ATF and FBI agents on scene at the Branch Dravidian compound. As chief photographer for the ATF Division, I recorded many photos of the team loading on the HC-130 H(tail number 1719), in flight and arriving at Waco. To my knowledge, none of these photos have ever been seen by the public or published.
I would like to contact the Coast Guard in Clearwater and identify the crewmembers of 1719 that flew us to Waco on that day. I doubt that any of them are still on active duty. If you can be of help in this matter I would greatly appreciate it. I can be reached at 850-232-4935 or by email at: Thanks, Joe
