Richard D. Hehman, Maintenance
71st SOS, Nha Trang and Phan Rang, 1969

Seymour, Indiana was my birthplace in October 1947. I graduated from Brownstown High School in my hometown of Brownstown, Indiana. In 1972, I graduated from Indiana State University.

I joined the 930th Tactical Airlift Group and the 71st Tactical Airlift Squadron at Bakalar AFB and was assigned to aircraft maintenance. There are a lot of memories, from the comradery of the people I served with, the country of Vietnam itself, and the times we were under attack at Phan Rang. I was discharged at Columbus, Indiana in 1969. I currently live in Columbus, Indiana.
