Crew Chief KC-135A out of Carswell AFB, Texas, TDY to U-Tapao in 1972 for 95 days. Slept in the hooch just off the flightline "Charlie Row", 12 on and 12 off. Flew 3 Combat missions (with Combat pay) over Vietnam refueling RB-57, RB-66, and F-4 A/C. Because I was TDY, my official Military records do not reveal this ever happening, or any other TDY's I was involved with. Nor does my DD-214 reflect any thing associated with my duties in and around Southeast Asia. I am proud that I served during that time and any support I gave to our troops that were on the ground in Vietnam.
