Chain of Command Excerpt from http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/7002/333tfs.html
333rd Tactical Fighter Squadron "Redleg Lancers" Takhli RTAFB, Thailand, 8 December 1965 - 10 December 1970 In December of 1965, the 333rd Tactical Fighter Squadron, known as the "Lancers" launched out of Seymour Johnson AFB, North Carolina, arriving at Takhli with their 25 pilots on the 8th. Sufficient time remained after area checkouts for the squadron to complete more than 300 combat sorties that month.
The 333rd supported the 355th TFW's "Rolling Thunder" strikes into North Vietnam losing several aircraft and pilots to the increasing defenses around Hanoi in early 1966.
Late in April, when the Wing was permitted to hit the Thai Nguyen rail yards, the Lancers commander (Lt.Col. Jim Young) led the strike force which destroyed most of that vital facility.
Throughout the rest of 1966 and on through the end of the bombing of the North in 1968 the men of the 333rd contributed significantly to making the 355th TFW "PACAF's Pride".
Although they destroyed numerous missile sites, the 333rd Iron Hands were victims to heavy losses from the defenses of their incredibly hostile environment and by mid-August 1966 the original F-105F's had all been destroyed or damaged beyond repair.
The resulting increase in losses to strike aircraft was halted later in the year when a new batch of Wild Weasel F-105F's arrived and when the strike birds began carrying the Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) pod with them on their missions.
