The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Abraham Lincoln

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

My brother served 2 years at Ubon during that time.

When he got out, he told me of many "unlisted" missions that flew out of there.
I still have one of the dozens of wrist watches he sent back to the states.
He just smiled when people said we never fought in Cambodia.

Hello,

My Dad served in Thailand in the AirForce as a munitions builder. He is looking to contact others that were stationed there. Please contact me, so I can forward this to him.

Thanks,

Bill

I just read a fact that I didn't know. Migs shot down 9 F-4s for every mig we shot down in 1965. That came from YOUTUBE.
After we got our hands on the mig at that time. They said it was not the airplane but our guys couldn't handle a dogfight and they started the pilot training center. Just what I read.

I spent a year there in the U.S. Army ~ didn't mix much with Air Force personnel.
