19 - 1966-67

Fes Cannady: fescan@comcast.net

Your site was great. I was a weapons loader 1966-67. Maybe I loaded your plane at one time or another.
I have a DVD of 8 MM movies I shot there that I sell for $7.00 to any USA address.
I also have a site with many Korat photos but I can not put the URL here. Anyone can email me and I will give it to them.
Regards, A1C Fes Cannady.

18 - Unit History

James Carter: fish431@yahoo.com


Sir,
I served with the 34th from 92-96 and I realize your site does not pertain to that period. But during my time as a crew chief when I had the chance and I was at ops I would get the unit historian to show me scrapbooks that the squadron still maintained from the days you guys spent at Korat. I wished that unit lineage had been more emphasized. I don’t think anybody even knew of "The Men in Black". What a shame. Well anyway I knew from your scrapbooks and now ten years later I remember. Your sacrifices are not forgotten! Thank you and God Bless.

16 - Glen Bullock

Al Haberbusch: haberPSU64@cox.net


I was a college classmate (we were in AFROTC) and friend of Glen Bullock. In my view he had good prospects to go a long way in the USAF. I didn't really get to see him much once we hit active duty. He and I did get together while he was in UPT at Craig AFB , AL and I was TDY to a school at Maxwell. While he was at Nellis he came in to see me as I was stationed at the then Los Angeles AFS (Space Systems Division of AF Systems Command).

I have made some postings on virtual walls about Glen. In fact the picture you have on your site is the one I posted on the walls. Initially I thought he was in the 469th TFS but found out later he was in the 34th.

I would like to hear from those who knew and flew with Glen in those few short months at Korat May-Oct 66. Hopefully he was the kind of officer I felt he would be.

I was lucky and spent 27 years all in the research, development, test and acquisition business -- space, aircraft and munitions and made one more grade than I thought I would -- lots of right place, right time, right support.

I currently live adjacent to Eglin AFB FL where I did three assignments.
Regards, Al Haberbusch, Col (Ret) USAF

14 - Served with the 34th

Charlie Day: chowdown@yellowdogs.com

I was assigned to the 34th TFS during the time that Korat was beginning to close. When the 34th deployed to the states and left Korat I was the NCOIC of Ops. I stayed at Korat and was reassigned to Randolph in San Antonio.
My time with the 34th was a very good time for me, one which I will remember forever.
