"perfecting what we had begun"
8th Expeditionary Air Mobility Squadron
"These guys were airmen living a soldier's life at remote air strips deep in the VC-infested jungle... "
"Some of us saw more than the average Air force guy" - Mike Warren '68-70
Since we were all volunteers, and since not all volunteers were accepted,
and since many times the 'volunteers' were chosen to join MOB by existing members,
we were also known as
"The Chosen Few"
from the 834th Air Division "Airlifter" June, 1970
