will continue to ensure we tell the story of those United States Air Force Air Commandos who flew the mighty
AC-119 gunships during the Vietnam War.
To Accompany Promotion To Lead Crew Status
The following individuals distinguished themselves by extraordinary achievement while participating as contributors to the AC-119 gunships website. During this time these donors embarked on a one-armed monetary mission for a friendly website operating against heavily defended (Home Defence Forces) financial resources. After attacking their pockets and locating several pieces of various coinage, these crewmembers made repeated donations against these financial odds despite intense and accurate home fire. Their superior financial finess resulted in the furtherance of this website for another year. The professional competence, monetary skill, and devotion to this website displayed by these crew members reflect great credit upon themsleves, this website, the history of the Air Commandos, and the United States Air Force.

Note: For those of you not familiar with baht, it is Thai money. Super baht is someone with lots of bucks. Nit noi baht is someone with little money. If you are cursed to have the designation "nit noi baht cheap charlie" you are in serious trouble and probably a "number 10 GI."
