The Caribou Tax
Just to reiterate the plea in the newsletter, the Association needs your
support. If you are a member, please check the roster
and see if you are up to date. If the "Tax" date is
not "2019" or later, please get a check in the mail to
Jess Cogley. If you are not a member, please consider joining. We
welcome former Caribou people as voting members and anyone else who would
like to help support the Association as non-voting members. In
either case, you will receive the newsletter. Full information,
along with Jess' address is on the FAQ
A number of us are trying to compile historical information on the USAF
C-7A, C-7B, and its units (including training, AFRES, and ANG units).
The results of some of that work is to be found in our pages devoted to Caribou
units and aircraft squadron assignments. The information on
public web sources is limited, but we have a huge wealth of it in people's
heads. It sure would be nice if some of it could come this way.
We are particularly interested in nailing down the location history
of the Vietnam squadrons from 1 Jan 1967 and the aircraft tail numbers
assigned to each squadron. Following that, information on the Wing
and Squadron Commanders is needed. Until we can convince someone to
take on the role of Official Historian, forward any information you have
to your cantankerous Webmaster.
