I am currently trying to help my dad obtain disability benefits. He was in the 23rd Field Maintenance Squadron. He left for Takhli in April of 1965 and I have heard him talk about stopping in Hawaii. Out of curiosity I checked a paper of his that I have...the Special Order from 835th Air Division (TAC) dated 6 April 1965 and there is an A1C Richard Hopkins and an A2C Donald Kesler listed. My dad is Richard Falkenrath. Don't know if your Veteran remembers him. If you feel this letter or getting in touch with my father would help, please email me. Either way...best of luck to you!!
