MSgt Kosmak served as my radio superintendent in the 33rd Combat Comm Squadron. He was the consummate professional who never tired of bringing innovation to the fight. He used his ham radio background to help teach antenna construction techniques to young operators and even provided instruction in CW to ensure the message always got through. John -- you will be missed!
