Phu Bai airport takeoff, August 1968

...
220th RAC, Phu Bai, maint, Jan 1969, please identify mechanic
...
"As I continue to come upon notes of history that are stashed away, to add to the last paragraph of the latest 4th Qtr CATCOM-Dewey Grocox's entry for the historical movement from Fort Lewis, and his time in Phu Bai during 1965-66, tells us that Gustof Fagerson, from Texas (a fellow crew chief/mechanic?), designed the 220th (We Observe) unit patch on an engine crate.
...
" As I was going through a lot of old photos, particularly looking for anything that I had sent home from the 220th, in 1966-67, I also came across these special days in our family history, which occurred some 20 years after I departed Phu Bai.
Our younger son, Doug, earned his Navy "Wings of Gold" and went on to fly an A-6 off the USS Eisenhower (from the Persian Gulf). He was in the initial attacks during Desert Storm I. His other duties included patrol of the northern border of Iraq from the Mediterranean Sea. Selected by his peers as the number one pilot in his Squadron during that cruise, he was assigned as a Project Manager in Navy Weapons Testing at China Lake, CA. However, Doug left the Navy after 9+ years, in early 1997, for several personal reasons, among them being his conviction that the Navy was not doing a very good job in cleaning up their "Tail Hook" issues. He had no problem landing a position with MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. in St. Peters, MO, and is now the company's Strategic Marketing Manager in Europe and the Far East. He and his family live in St. Charles, MO.
After earning his Army Aviator Wings, as a Medical Service Corps officer, an Honor Graduate, #number 2 in his class, our first son Chris was assigned to a UH-1 Med Evac unit at Fort Ord, CA. He always felt badly that his younger brother was in the real fray of things, but his unit was never sent to the action, since the 7th Infantry Division and its supporting units were not sent over there. However, he got plenty of flying time, covering a lot of the entire West Coast for med-evac and MAST missions, plus a couple of deployments to Central America during that time. After that tour, Chris applied for Med School, became an Army doctor and was assigned to the 10th Aviation Brigade at Fort Drum, NY (his Dad's former unit, when he was Battalion Commander of the 10th Aviation Battalion at Fort Lewis, WA-before the regimental system came along). Chris served as the Flight Surgeon of the 1-10th Aviation Battalion, and then as the Brigade Flight Surgeon, where he was one of the few flying Docs being retained on flight status at that time in the Army. Chris eventually served in Afghanistan while assigned to Munson Army Hospital at Fort Bragg when he was deployed to the Field Medical (Evac) Hospital at Bagram AFB, as an Orthopedic Surgeon. He retired in 2009 as the Chief Hand Surgeon at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX, after 24 years of service and is currently in private practice in Sacramento, CA.
Between these two events, my wife, Ellie-and their mother-underwent breast cancer surgery, which we had been tracking that spring (1987). She insisted on delaying the surgery until after Doug's graduation in May, but I also insisted that we tell them what was going on and that we would take care of business before Chris' graduation in August.

Here are two of men recognized by name, and one aerial shot of Phu Bai:

...
I only served with the 220th as an AO in Phu Bai in 1971. The story was the pilot got too low on approach to Phu Bai and caught the landing gear on a fence or something strong enough to flip the bird dog.
...
I'm pretty sure we did not attempt to get back to Phu Bai. We may have landed at Dong Ha.
