My uncle, George Gifford, was an F-105 Thud driver with the 333rd TFS during 1966-1967. He was originally with the 80th TFS flying Thuds out of Yokota AFB in Japan with Temporary Duty (TDY) assignments to Korat in 1964 and later Takhli in 1965 but volunteered to serve with the 333rd to complete his 100 missions (which he did in September 1967). I was wondering if your father recalls if my uncle was in the picture of the 333rd TFS taken in May 1967 which is at the beginning of this topic?
The more I learn about what Thud drivers did during this time, the more impressed and incrediably grateful I become. I would like to express to you, your family and especially your father, sincere thanks on behalf of myself and my children for your service and sacrifice.
