Operation Fact Sheet

Recommended Posts

I found these while going through my brothers estate. Lost him to cancer not long ago. He was a WO2 Huey pilot for 18 months starting in '68. Do any on you Operation Fact Sheet boys recognize these as leaflets? The first attactment is the front and back, while the other two are the front only. Thanks for your help.

Sorry about your brother pwylie. Was a brave man to be a Huey pilot in Nam. The last leaflet is similar to a CHIEU HOI pass used to get the VC to come over to our side, but is most probably a warning to mothers with children to be aware of the agent orange that is going to be sprayed in their area and if the kids are sprayed to bring this free pass and get help. The first leaflet would appear to tell the VC we are going to spray your jungle with agent orange and when the leaves fall we can see you and will send much death from above to make you die VC. That's just my take on it. Bill . P.S. How's Summerville these days. Lived there in the mid 70's as FE on 141's in the 20th MAS at Charlietown.

Cold. Damn cold. It's been below freezing every night this week. John McKissick, the all time winningest football coach at any level, is still coaching and winning. Thanks for your help with the leaflets.

Pat,

Not to change the subject but I was down on the other end of the base in the 20 TASS at the same time you were there.

Those are probably leaflets that were dropped in South Vietnam. A lot of different organizations dropped leaflets. FACT SHEET was specific to North Vietnam. It started in April, 1965 and was taken over by the C-130E-Is after they arrived at CCK in order to give them time in North Vietnamese airspace.

Fellow Herks,

It's been a long time, but my experience with leaflets is as follows. In 1967 I was a Prop repairmen in Naha, and after some time I was sent to Ubon RTAFB in early 1968 to replace another Airman in support of the 'Blind Bat' flare planes. It was a chance to get some 'Air' time. I flew on every plane that would let me join as an extra crewman. I repaired the planes during the day and flew every night I could. it was exciting for a 21 year old. One plane came through to drop leaflets. My time with that plane was very brief but I did save a couple of leaflets. I'll try to attach them. They are also posted on My photos.

Ron
