Many moons ago, I flew F-4s out of Udorn, Thailand. Got shot at daily and one day I had the glorious opportunity to use your services.
I was a youngster during my tour and failed failed failed to appreciate the team necessary in getting me home. I interfaced daily with the equipment specialists in the squadron before every flight and really neglected to thank the guys who helped save my life.
If your guys can accept a belated THANKS! I owe them my life.
I don’t know how often you get to interface with aircrews now, but my mission story is a goodie. I’d be ecstatic to make a presentation at the reunion if you want. At the very minimum, please share this thank you with the guys.
