Hi Shane....glad to hear from you. I have scanned the pictures from the Falcon cruise book of the hydraulics crew, and the one of your dad. I will go through the book, and see if I can locate him in any other photos. The book has all kinds of info regarding the squadron and the time spent in Viet Nam. Each dept. was listed separately in the book, and I have scanned the hydraulics pages for you. If you would like more scanned of the book I can do that. I do remember your dad, just by looks. Being in different departments, we never got acquainted. I will send the pictures to your gmail account. In your e-mail it sounds like your dad has passed away. If so, I am sorry to hear that.
You mentioned other pictures. Are they of the airfield, and aircraft ? I have some of the airstrip, base housing, etc. Would be curious to know what you have. I would scan and share some of mine.
Thanks, Dan Holben

I was in VMFA 232 in 1972 in Vietnam and was a LCpl working in power plants. Then we went to Thailand in 1973. Were you there when Lt. Sam Cordova got shot down? I served 20 years and retired in 1991 as a Msgt. Would like to hear from you.

Hi Frank....I worked in Com/Nav in VMFA 334 in Chu Lai in 1969. Spent some time in Iwakuni Japan, and returned back to states in 1970. In service from 1966 to 1970.
Did you know anyone from 334 squadron ? Nice to hear from you,
Semper Fi........Not sure if my 1st post went or not.

I was also in VMFA-334. Joined in July 1967 and stayed with them until August 1970 when I finally returned to the US and got out. I was on the team that put the cruise book together. There have been a number of reunions. Last year there was a large one in San Diego, mostly pilots, but not exclusively. A few of the Electrical Shop have been getting together every year or so for the last few years. I have not attended any of the past gatherings but plan to attend some of the future ones.
