Yep those guys were always on the flight line and the Alert Areas - I forgot what they were called,but they weren't called Air Police. The Air Police were the guys who wore the dress uniform with the white hats and pistols.
It was told to us while going thru mechanic training that if we flunked out,we were going to be either these guys or cooks.
I never found out if that was true.
