Other Comments:
I retired from the AF in 1981, then went to work at Monarch Machine Tool Co. in Sidney, Ohio as a Field Service Rep. I worked my way up to Assistant Service Mgr. In 1995 I then accepted a position at Makino Inc. in Mason, OH as a Field Service Engineer. I retired from Makino in 2006. If there was a place I did not see while in the Air Force I saw it while working for the machine tool business. I met lots of interesting people, saw lots of interesting things, and visited many interesting places. In my civilian occupation, I traveled to Canada, Mexico, Turkey, Singapore, Japan, Denmark, and the Netherlands. My military travels took me to Panama, Venezuela, Costa Rico, Vietnam, England, Germany, Belgium, and Spain.

Aircraft/Missile Information
The B-26K is a modified and remanufactured A-26B originally built during World War II. On Mark Engineering of California rebuilt aging Douglas B-26Bs during 1964 and 1965 for use in the Vietnam War. Due to political considerations the aircraft were called A-26A during their deployment to Thailand with the 609th Special Operations Squadron. Their duties in Vietnam primarily consisted of interdicting the flow of North Vietnamese supplies and troops down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Invaders served until 1969 when the last of them were returned to the United States.
