South Vietnam Before 1975 V

Evacuation: C-141 from Saigon to Clark AFB above and below.  Can't remember for sure but believe I couldn't find the flash for my Canon FT.

Clowns entertained us at Clark.  Really made the kids happy.

The American women that helped out were wives of B-52 pilots who said their husbands were eager to return if given orders. We had a briefing that said it was possible the Vietnamese would be returned to Vietnam.  You can imagine how that would have gone over.  Also the PI government was worried about us landing there considering the Vietnamese government had been overthrown and replaced by Communists.
I believe this was in Guam where we had a long wait for the next flight to CA.
