Was stationed tdy at Ubon rtab between march and may of 1968. I was assigned to radio shop and flew on 3 blind bat missions. Saw in the book Trash Haulers about 56-0477 curiously I check old paper work I had and could'nt believe I had flown a mission 5 weeks earlier on it. It seems strange people wondering why non crew members where on blindbat and lamplighter missions. It was common practice for maintenance people tdy form Naha to fly to get combat pay and tax exemptions. Also had some strange experiences pertaining to Gary Pate when my brother was air force liaison officer for full accounting of MIA in Southeast asia. Anyone can contact me I live in Tampa
retired from IBEW and City of Tampa
