Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
TSgt Truitt Hickman, SMSgt George Harman, Captain David Graham, A1C Val Dorn Venta, A1C Kib Eveland, SSgt Jerald Hungerford.

Best Moment
Promoted to SSgt (E-5) on May 1, 1967.

Tour curtailed on June 5, 1967 from February 24, 1968 to December 20, 1967 in accordance with Headquarters SAC Message DPAMA1 40869, dated June 1967.


Worst Moment
Slipped while getting down from top bunk in barracks, causing "fracture, chip, of Calcaneous bone" injury on August 16, 1967. Foot placed in a knee-length cast.

I was removed from flying status for six weeks. After six weeks passed, the doctor apologized for making an error in reading the xray of my foot, saying it was a flaw line in the xray, not a fracture. Returned to active Flying status on September 28, 1967.
