Re: 463rd TCW:

"On Nov. 23, 1965, the wing moved to Mactan Isle Air Field, Philippines, and assumed responsibility for operating a C-130 combat airlift support unit at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, South Vietnam, and a detachment at Clark AB, Philippines. On Aug. 1, 1967, the Air Force redesignated the wing to the 463rd Tactical Airlift Wing."
From Dave Scoggins 22 Sep 09:

"Got notification that someone was added to my "Also there" on my profile. Checked and saw one of them was Major Conroy. Apparently we were stationed at Mactan and Norton together.

Anyway, I remember the good Major. I was working in Squadron Training office when he upgraded to "Select Lead" AC. Had to be one of the best at airdrop with the C-141 to make a "Select Lead" crew. I also went on a Wespac trip with him. He was an IP and had 2 students with him. It was a good trip and he made sure both the youngsters joined in on the Bag Drags at every stop.

If memory serves I was the senior Engineer and, therefore, the NCOIC for the trip. It was about 8 or 9 days long and we got lots of flying. Norton-Travis-Hickam-Wake-Kadena-Danang-Cam RAhn Bay-Kadena-Saigon-Kadena-Hickam-Travis-Norton. Typical.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know I knew the man and he was a good man to serve with."
