Letters to Gloria

While I was in Southeast Asia I wrote hundreds of letters to my then-girlfriend Gloria.  We got married when I returned from my Southeast Asia tour.  The
color-highlighted paragraphs
are quotes from those letters.

Tactical Airdrome Directory- South Vietnam (TAD)

Pilots and navigators got information about large airfields from the IFR enroute supplement and instrument approach books. 

Many airfields in Vietnam were temporary or had no instrument approaches so they were not included in these publications.  The USAF compiled information about these small airfields into a separate book, affectionately called the TAD.
