Good Man and Well Respected
I was stationed, at Phan Rang, AFB., with Sgt., Bledsoe. I was there, that night of the crash, at Phan Rang, AFB., October 10, 1968 and I, was part of the rescue, team, at the scene, of the crash. I’ll never, forget that night and the five brave men, that died, that day. If any relatives, or friends, would like to e-mail me, I’ll be there, for your thoughts. Thursday, September 30, 2004
