Subject: BINH THUY AB 1968 RE: MORATORIUM ON OUTGOING R&R FLIGHTS FROM THE BASE AFTER TET OFFENSIVE BEGAN

My name is Ron Boussom. I'm a writer doing a book about my friend, A1C Kenneth E. Baker Jr., Weather Observer, Det 13, 30WS, Binh Thuy AB….KIA in control tower by direct hit from 75mm recoilless rifle round in VC attack March 22, 1968. A fellow observer returned from his birthday R&R too tired to work his scheduled midnight shift that night, and asked Kenny to take it for him.

However, the weatherman claims he scheduled the change in advance with Kenny, so he could take a week's leave in Hawaii to meet his wife and celebrate his birthday there. Tet hit Binh Thuy February 2, 1968. If he left a week prior to March 22nd, that would have been approximately March 15th, 5-1/2 weeks after Tet began.

If there's anyone out there who was at Binh Thuy during 1968, and remembers how long that moratorium on outgoing R&R flights lasted, please contact me ASAP. This book is for Kenny's family. I'm just trying to find the truth of what happened. My sincere thanks to VSPA for the opportunity to post this notice.
