By the time I arrived there in 1971 Arc Light was a finely tuned operation. I flew missions from UTapao RTAFB, Thailand, Kadina AFB, Okinawa and Anderson AFB, Guam, but for several reasons our crews spent most of our time at UTapao. Something I didn't know at the time, but learned from CWO3 Dennis M. was that in the early days of the war Thailand wouldn't allow American bombers to operate from its airfields. By my time time that had all changed and they were winding down the Kadina operation so we only flew one cycle from there. I flew all the Linebacker I missions but had rotated back home by the time Linebacker Ii rolled around. Did go back for another Arc Light tour in 1973.
