In 2009 the AC-119 Gunship Association published a full color, hard-bound “History Book” that contained almost 250 AC-119 Gunship air and ground crewmembers’ memoirs, biographies, and stories (with pictures) focused on their time in AC-119s. That book also contained historical information about the Shadow and Stinger Gunships, as well as their 71st, 17th, and 18th Special Operations Squadrons that served in Vietnam.
Since 2009, we’ve collected many additional memoirs, bios, and stories.
This AC-119 Gunships Biographies book contains the bios from the original History Book as well as additional bios that have been submitted to the AC-119 Gunship Association after the original History Book was published. You can also read these individual bios on our website at https://www.ac119gunships.com/bios-videos-and-stories/.
