In Response To: Captain Fred Cherry ()
I have been following the Fred Cherry story since 1973 when he stepped off that C141. He caught my attention because he was one of the few black POWs.I saw him on the wings program and i read anything that i could find on him. I am an Air Force vet and i was stationed at Takhli air base, which is where Mr. Cherry was flying out of when he was shot down. I was there long after he was shot down (1972). Next to the F4 Phantom the F105 is one of my favorite aircraft.
