Our group set up Mactan in 1965. It was a deserted base left over from WWII at that time. We were flying C124's out of McChord. I enjoyed Lapu Lapu and the beaches there. Some of our guys ended up going to Mactan and flew the "B" while I went to CCK and flew the "E".

My husband received two "Order Of The Wounded Herky" awards.  One for when his plane was damaged at Tan Son Nhut air base in April 1967 and one for when another plane was damaged at Da Nang in July 1967.59e5220e03579_OrderoftheWoundedHerkyDa-Nang(hidden).thumb.jpg.63f977d255b5857bd1e4aab1fc8506b0.jpg
