I am not sure of the guys name that was in charge of the traffic section when I took over but he was a sgt-E5. Colson does ring a bell. I think I took over the section in december of 68. Do you remember the pictures that that were in my desk drewer that were taken of the guy that was killed in a convoy accident? That was always on my mind when we were running the convoys. The office in the next room was the thai civilian id office and there was the prettiest girl that worked in there but I can't remember her name. I think her father was a high ranking thai army officer. I feel so lucky to have been stationed there. my e-mail is

Dennis Freeman..When I arrived at 281st about Nov 1967 Sgt Terry Segraves was head of the traffic section, when he left Sp4 Jack Colson took over as head of the traffic section, my memory is that when I left, end of Oct 1967 Colson was still running it. I can't place your name in my memory, Im going to dig out my photos to see if I find you in any of them. I'm sure we new each other. ar any of these names familiar to you, Nuegant, John Borich, Parish, Duboski, Natalie
