Vietnam (67-Aug 68). was all airborne I was also a 292x1 there, and I flew nearly everyday. My flying records were lost in a fire at home in 1971.

I attended basic the Russian course at Syracuse in 1963/64. Was later assigned to the 6988th Yokota, Japan. Left the USAF in January 1968 as a SSGT. Returned home to Louisville,Ky where I completed a degree in Russian Language in 1970 and was commissioned a 2LT through the AFROTC program. I was then trained as a Navigator, flew over 4000 hours in B-52a and a 1000 hours in FB-111As. Served in various positions in SAC and retired as a Colonel in 1998. I then worked at the Dept of State first as the Director For Humanitarian Programs to the Newly Independent States (Former Soviet Union), retiring again in 2006. Would be interested in being a member of the Propwash Gang. Tried to reach Larry Tart but without success. ;)

Was a 292x1 at Darmstadt from May 68 to Nov 69. Worked on Dog Flight. Loved the tour of duty and the travel. Left in Nov 69 for the 6994th at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Saigon, Vietnam. I was supposed to stay in Germany, but a fellow Dog Flight 292x1 who was married and his wife became pregnant, switched orders with me. The order change was approved by Col. Davidson, wing Commander. I'd like to find Randy. I think his name was Randy White, or some other last name. Anyone know?

Reading the article in the Syracuse Post Standard about the airmen who were killed in the fire on hilltop I think of my father who was a Syracuse City Fireman stationed at engine 8 on the corner of Colvin and Salina St. He was at that fire and every time we drove by those barracks when I was a kid he would always say how sad it was that those young men lost their lives in that fire. It deeply affected him. How glad I was to see that they will always be remembered because I still say a little prayer every time I drive by. It may look different but for some the memory remains.

I enjoyed looking through the guestbook and seeing a couple of old friends from the 6916th SS from 1964-66. I look forward to getting in touch with them soon. Hope they are still well. What a great time I had doing the job we had to do with incredibly talented people like Conrad R. Schott, who I was privileged to have as my boss in the Sham Shop.

I trust you remember this tired old Gunner from our days at Omaha, Upper Heyford, Mildenhall, Rhein-Main, etc....I was wondering how I would go about obtaining a copy of your "magnum opus" on USAFSS and ESC....
