Here are some photos that were sent to me from Phil Yocum, of Summitville, OH. Phil was an engineman (EN3) with 513 while they were based at Sa Dec from 1967 until 1968. Phil is very lucky to have made it home alive. Please look at Photo #13 and read his description .Does anyone recognize any of the people? We would like to put names with faces.
