Visitor Comments: Thanks for taking the time to create and maintain this site. So much of what we did in that war has never been told and as time passes and those of us who were there also pass that knowledge will be forever lost. Projects like this help to complete the history of what was heroic and great about the effort. I'm confident that someday our sacrifice as a nation will be better known and the impact we had upon the outcome of the Cold War will be better understood.

Visitor Comments: Thank you for all of your hard work documenting this mission after it was declassified. My father SMSGT Thomas Groomes (USAF ret)was a SSGT assigned to this mission. This site is a sobering reminder of the dangerous missions our military is asked to do--often without acknowledging these missions ever take place to the public at large.

Their sacrifice is appreciated by all of us who serve our country today. We will never forget!

Major Todd "Disney" Groomes

Visitor Comments: This was a very interesting and heartfelt story of the dedication and courage of USAF personnel. I came across the story of the Medal of Honor presentation for CMSgt Etchberger on the AF website and began some research. I was surprised to find out someone involved in the rescue operation, Col (Ret) Joe Panza was a former commander of mine during a tour in England (RAF Chicksands).

My prayers to the familes of those lost.

Visitor Comments: i was in high school in italy (american h.s. in vicenza) and college (wash dc) during the war and only knew what I read in the Wash Post. At this late date I am reading all of the books I can get on Viet Nam. On my 6th, called ne Day Too Long by Timothy N Castle. What an amazing, sad story. I am doing all this research out of a sense of guilt. We didn't do enough for our men and women in that war. Thank you for keeping their memories alive.
