RECIPROCAL AGREEMENTS OF RED HORSE HISTORY

REDHORSE HISTORY IN THE YEARS 1973 THROUGH 1980

With the many passing years of the events as portrayed, dates, places, and the people recognized in this report it does not it in anyway attempt to cover all the aspects of our many achievements that are made totally by the REDHORSE Community.

Recognizing this fact, major contributions were also made by other RED HORSE units and squadrons operating from Vietnam, Thailand, Korea and from some other OLAA locations assigned to our worldwide missions prior to and after 1973 through 1980. Please excuse any lapses of memory, or in the timming of those events, or even the exact details, or involvement of the people credited; knowingly and understanding, that all REDHORSE members, both out of the past and present, did and do contribute immensely in accomplishing all the assigned missions/projects, however, the majority of the people given the credit herein were the same career officers, and non-commissioned officers (NCOs) whom spent a number of years with RED HORSE, and did remain there for a number of years, in the same area for more than an one year tour of duty.

The very same people who interacted with each other over longer period of time allowing for my personal observations and a time for me to form my own opinions. These words are given from my own personal experiences which I now relate from those eight years I spent with REDHORSE. This placed me in a position of knowing the facts, by having also worked with these great professionals, while I served in leadership positions as a structural technician, project manager, structural superintendent, and the chief of operations for 33 continious months. Beginning with the rank of SSgt, 1966 in Vietnam, ending as a CMSgt, 1980 in Korea.

REDHORSE History with all it's stated personal and professional events are real world achievements which remains much larger than just being the past leadership or persons mentioned. There are also others from within the ranks who have made REDHORSE moreover a legend whom are now fulfilling the current leadership position, and continuing on with making their own history. It is to those REDHORSE members, whom are the product of their own past experiences with the squadrons, that I dedicate this testimony a lasting summary.
