I was the Avionics midnight shift NCOIC when Paul took off from Mildenhall. It was exciting at the TAC CP that night. Lots of stars in civies at 0430. I thought the Russians had finally done it.

We flew the 82nd into Andrews when the hippies marched on Washington, and moved the 101st to Glenview NAS for the Democrat National Convention in Chicago.
A good time was had by all.
