Just got thru poring over all 42 pages and did not find anyone whose path crossed with mine.

Did not see anyone whose path crossed with my dad's either. He was US Army 1942-1963 (Normandy, Germany, Korea, Ft. Sill, then back to Korea).

Thank you all for your brave service.

Did you get a chance to take a look at the 42 pages? There are lots of others from the 90's and early 2000's -- which was way after my tour.

It was fascinating to look through the lists.

Not necessarily. Can you imagine the number of TDYs everyone here went on? You may have met them, but just don't know it.

Welcome back Rhino !!

I read several of your posts.

And you are right.

Funny though of all the many military websites I have been on and seen I have never come across anyone that was even near where I was stationed when I was stationed there. Bad luck I guess.

And the old vets never seem to go back before Viet Nam (the original spelling).

One vet here in your thread was pre-Vietnam (modern spelling) though. That was interesting to see and read about.

Great thread thank you.

Welcome, Airman! Or Sergeant. Or Major.

I remember my father telling me that the USAF was formed right after WW2 and to do it they recruited from the Army, Navy, and Marines to form a new hybrid armed force. My dad wanted to get in, but there was too much supply of willing transferees.

Enjoy the forum.

Thank you for your current service during your tour of duty and watch.
