just as I was thinking no one bothered to come here any more!!!! I was at Takhli only in 1966,
I arrived in February from the ADC and was shocked to find myself working on F-105's and in TAC. Since there was the big build-up in SEA a shortage of Jet Aircraft Mechanics developed back in CONUS. I received a 55 day curtailment and found myself back in CONUS and traveling on Christmas Day 1966. Since I was a short-timer (less than 10 mos. on my enlistment), I ended up back in ADC on the east coast where I finished up my enlistment. I did get to see the Bob Hope show before I left. I missed Christmas at Takhli, but the day after at Home was great! I even got to show off my VERY dark TAN! LouB.
