The events discussed here took place 26 years ago, during my combat tour in the A-1 Skyraider from Oct 71 to Oct 72. The entries are taken directly from the journal I developed one year after my return from SEA. The journal was developed with the aid of my mission log which was kept on a daily basis in SEA. The entries are concise, sometimes harsh and critical, but always my true feelings at the time. Entries were made only on days when I flew combat sorties. Brackets [ ]within the italicized journal entries indicate material added at the time it was posted on this website.
