Welcome to the AC-119 Gunship Association’s Website!
Dedicated to all who maintained, flew, and supported AC-119G “Shadow” and AC-119K “Stinger” gunships during the Vietnam War.
Home of the 71st, 17th, and 18th Special Operations Squadrons and personnel who served in AC-119s.
Our Mission — Why we exist
To preserve our fixed-wing gunship heritage and history
To remember our fallen and to keep lit the flames of our camaraderie–old friendships and new ones
To educate historians and the public about the mission, aircrew, groundcrew, and others associated with the AC-119 gunships
