"Welcome Back" Comments

As noted on the Homepage, we sent emails to nearly 900 old addresses gleaned from the legacy site. We knew going in that a lot of these would no longer be valid, but we figured it was worth a shot. Since we didn't ask if it was OK, we're not showing the emails but if you spot somebody you want to get back in touch with let us know. We'll relay the message. Here's what we got:

Comment: Was in Vietnam at Tan San Nhut AB 1971-1972 (360th TEWS). Lost everything when Pinatubo erupted in 1991 (I was at Clark AB in the Philippines when Pinatubo erupted), so cannot provide any pictures or other data. Retired the same year and now live in the Philippines with my wife and grandson.

Comment: I was a member of the activation team that came TDY from the 6922nd Wing at Clark AB to TSN on 04/14/1966, under the command of (then MAJ) Bill Ballard. We worked with the ASA 509th RRU for the 59 days, then returned to Clark. I put a request in to go PCS to the 94th after Clark, but had already been assigned to go to the 6924th Sqdn at Da Nang.

Comment: I was at 360 TEWS Saigon for a year then I went to the OV-10 as a Rustic FAC out of Ubon then I went to Laos as a Raven FAC. While I was flying Steel Tiger as a Raven I got a call from ABCCC saying that they had just received a call from an EC47 and they gave me the coordinates. Most FACs didn’t respond to EC 47 tips because they never saw anything but since I flew the mission I knew what to look for. As usual it was just trees but I called for air, got a flight of Sandies that needed to dispose of their CBUs. I put them in on a triangle of tees. None of us saw anything but when I got back to Savannakhet intel informed me that we had hit an Newly arrived NVA division and they had 80% casualties and were no longer combat ready! All because I flew the EC-47, recognized the call sign and trusted the report. Thought you guys might like to know. Legman, Rustic, Raven - Doug Mitchell

Hello TOM & JOE. I’m Charles Hickman, Tan Son Nhut 3/69 - 3/70.

I visit the site periodically. Also purchased your book Goodfellow AFB thru Blackwell Books, England. For less than Amazon with no shipping. Googled it and found they had it. Thanks for your dedication to the USAFSS/AIA/ESC/25th Air Force and EC-47 site.
