8th APS Mobility Operations Branch


Just found this site.  I am sending pictures of myself sitting on the back of an Air Force truck at Ton Son Nhut Air Base 1968.  The other picture is a friend of mine who showed up in Nam and we spent 8 months together.  His name is Gordon Gale.  We were both there during the Tet Offensive of 1967-68.  Gordon retired from the Air Force.  This was the last year of my hitch and I was on my way home in Sept 68.  Great finding this webpage and I would like any news as it is available.  I also have a set of orders somewhere if I can find them with the names of a bunch of the guys I was with.  If I here back from you I will send the names if I can find them and maybe between all of us we could find some of the other guys I was with.  Great website, keep it going and hoorah for the 8th Aerial Port Squadron, 377th Combat Support Group.
