I was a Security Augmentee at Takhli RTAFB, while PCS from 6/66-6/67. Performed SA duties multiple times, usually guarding supply buildings, flightline APRON, newly constructed officer quarters, and the infamous far away bomb storage facilty, better known as the "bomb dump." - I even was on duty during the so called Sapper or helicopter intrusion. I recall having all the live ammo I could carry in my field jacket, an M-16A1 rifle, a Motorola brick radio, and I was dropped off and asked to climb up on an 15-20 meter high guard tower at the bomb dump, not knowing what to expect on the top! - I was scared shitless.......
