I enjoyed reading your web page. I actually love it. As long as it has been I have trouble remembering all that has happened there. Every now and then memories pop into my head. I lived through the TET in February 1968. I saw those red bullett tracers behind our revetment. Heard those mighty B-52s droping their load during TET. Scared the daylights out of me. Couldn't tell if they were out going or incoming. I remember spending 3 days in the bunkers. The PX got hit with a rocket round. Saw Right Guard deodrant cans blown all over the grounds. I also have a few pieces of shrapnel I keep as souvenirs.

Comments: Thanks for the detailed account. I was a 19 year old A2C working in maintenance administration for the Colonel, and then General who commanded the maintenance part of the 460TRW. I was a statistics guy who accumulated all those work order reports with you guys filled out for every job you did. We helped analyze failure trends, people needs and supply shortages to keep your mission going. Very proud of the work we all did. Thanks for your service.

Comments: Great page. And thanks so much for putting out the information you have online so that others can continue to learn! I was wondering however if you or anyone out there happened to know my father SGT Russell 'Rocky' Inman of the 377th Combat Support Group? Please feel free to email me if you did. I may have pictures my father took on base that I could scan and send. There are some real pretty ones of the 'new chapel' being built. Thank You!
