Got a question for you guys who served in the 122nd during the'NAM era. No.. I was not with the ANG. During THAT period I was a 91B20 Army Medic in an armored recon unit (1st/32nd.) Able to document people now in Iraq/Afghanistan, as well as WWII and Korea... but did any of you or your comrades do time in Southeast Asia?

I attended the Blacksnake Open House in June of 1999. The U.S.Navy Blue Angels were featured that year, and it was the best show I have ever seen the Blue Angels perform (I have seen them at least a dozen times from Atlanta to Willow Run).
Is there any thoughts of having another open house like the one in 1999?

I'm currently an F-16C+ Crew Chief (full time technician) with the 122FW Blacksnakes, recently re-enlisting after a 12 year vacation into the civilian world. I originally joined the 122nd in 90 as a traditional guardsman and worked the F-4Es after a 4 year active duty hitch working F-4E/Gs.
We still have the F-4E gate guard, but man could it use some paint. She's looking a bit worn out.

After serving proudly for 4 years in RegAF, I joined the 122nd. Subsequently we were activated and opened up the old "Seaweed" base at Chambley AB, France. Almost without exception, all of our members of the Wing served proudly. I especially remember working with Major Forrest Whitten, SMSgt Ron Bennett and others. A great unit "Blacksnakes," Keep up the tradition.

I was with the 163rd at Sioux City Airport in 1952. I was an Engine Mechanic and then a crew Chief on a F51D Mustang. The squadron had 2 T6 Trainers A D and a G model,also a C47 that was used to fly some troops home to Ft Wayne on the weekends. I would like to see some pictures of the squadrond F51s if available

I would like to inquire about a contact person for your group that would possibly be interested in assisting with an event in September, 05 in which the two young (11 & 14, I believe) African American men will be participating in.

This is to correct my e-mail address. I am the curator of the Greater Fort Wayne Aviation Museum - also located at the Fort Wayne International Airport - on the second floor of the Passenger Terminal Building.
