Chapel Memory Charles Akins, of the 377th Security Police Squadron took this photograph of the remains of a 122mm rocket that destroyed the Base Chapel, during the Feb 18, 1968, TET Attack.
Close Call To the front of this RB57E is a crater that was probably made by a mortar round.

It was definately a close call for the aircraft and anyone who was nearby at the time of impact.
Direct Hit This aircraft was not as lucky as the A-37 above.   It sustained a direct hit from a rocket or mortar round and totally demolished it.
CraterThis crater was made by a 122mm rocket or a mortar.
Going HomeCharlie Akins, going home!!!


He's so short, all he has to do is report to the terminal and walk up and get on the FREEDOM BIRD!!!
