Other Memories The 463rd Troop Carrier Wing at Mactan was the first unit that I was assigned to right out of Admin Specialist Tech School in Amarillo. The Wing has a great Air Force history. Several months after I arrived at Mactan, the Wing name was changed to the 463rd Tactical Airlift Wing to better reflect the various military activities conducted by the Wing and it's associated Squadrons in the Southeast Asia theater of operations. After I was PCS back to the states (next stop for me was to SAC in Michigan), the 463rd moved up to Clark Air Base outside of Manila. I bet that move was a big blow to the guys at Mactan who were use to that laid back, beach style life when they weren't TDY to Vietnam.
