34th Tactical Fighter Squadron - Thud Era

Korat RTAFB, Thailand - May 1966 to May 1969

The 34th TFS Memorial Journal

This Journal contains the names of deceased 34th TFS F-105 pilots, starting with those who were lost in 1966 and coming forward to those who have passed away in peacetime. Each of the pilots is honored with the dignity of a separate page in this hand-made, leather-bound, field journal beautifully crafted by an amazingly talented calligrapher. Both the journal and the custom-made walnut case that protects it are a fitting tribute to these warriors.
