February, 2020 Meeting: Vietnam Missions early in the Conflict
February 27, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Lt. Col. Gary Craig, USAF (Ret.)
Vietnam Missions early in the Conflict
Lt. Col. Craig will share some surprising details about the development of tactics at the “official” start of the Vietnam war.
Gary flew into Vietnam the first day of the official start of the Vietnam War in 1964. A few months later he bailed out of a burning KB-50J Tanker supporting the air strikes in the Pain of Jars in Laos.
He was on loan to the CIA (Air America) supporting the secret SOG (Special Operations Group) in Cambodia.
Returning home to Seattle in 1967, he joined the AF Reserves and flew C-141’s into Vietnam until the end of the War.
It is essential that we have an accurate headcount for the venue. Please remember to RSVP and let us know if your plans change. Thank you!
