My name is Robert C. Athey, Jr, (R. C). I was TDY from Kadena AB, Okinawa, Japan from about Jun 73 till Sep 73. There were 12 of us from Kadena. I was assigned to the CBPO, worked in the classification section.
If anyone who knew me and has or can get a copy of those TDY orders, I would really appreciate it. The orders would help me in getting some back annual leave. I am the AOD, working for the VAMC-Salisbury, NC. So if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Seems like most of the discussion revolves around the 65 - 67 era, when I was at Udorn in the 432 FMS Crash Team. I was actually at Takhli from Oct 68 to Sep 69.
I had a real good bud that flew in sooeys; and saw the 111s leave. I was NCO of the MO. or Qtr, in spite of all the trouble I got myself into because of my drinking. Missed the pot (devil weed) though - until later, in college.
Still trying to remember stuff.

I was stationed at Takhli from May 1969 to April 1970. I was a crew chief on EB66C # 469. I think I assigned to the 42nd TEWS.
It has been a long time. If I remember correctly there was a 41st TEWS and a 42nd TEWS. Sometime in 1969 41st TEWS and some of their airplanes went away. It was part of some government BS scaling back the war.
I also remember when a bunch of B52's came to Takhli TDY for a few weeks while their runway was being repaired. They were parked next to us.
