"It is Hurlburt (Field) and I would concur that the years were very early in the activation of the Air Commandos. In the late '60s I was assigned to the A-1/AT-28 squadron that occupied the one-story building on the left." - Jack Drummond
Drawing on personal experiences spanning three decades, Secord offers the ultimate insider's view of some of the most momentous hot and cold war operations of our time. Secord's induction into the shadow world of covert affairs began as a young pilot in 1961 when he was one of a handful of U.S. "advisors" who fought in the Air Force's covert Project Jungle Jim in the war-torn republic of Vietnam. In 1966, he was detailed to the CIA to help organize its covert air war over Laos, which he ran for three years. - Google Books
