Dennis Massa, one of the Founders of the Pleiku Air Base Association has passed away at his home in California.
Dick Palmatier has been seriously ill for over a year. He is in the hospital again and has another back surgery. According to his wife Helen, this last surgery seems to have gone pretty well. He is able to sit in bed without falling over. This is quite an improvement. Helen has asked that I share this information with you and to let you know that he has his I-Pad with him in the Hospital so you can send him emails. I know that you have his email address or you can get from the Pleiku Association Member Website. I know that he would enjoy hearing from all of us.
John J. Scott, MSgt (Ret), 77, passed away on 2 February 2015. He proudly served as an Air and Security Policeman for 21-years at various duty stations including Sampson AFB, NY, Ft Carson, CO, Pleiku AB, Vietnam, Chanute AFB, IL, Lowry AFB, CO, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, Randolph AFB, TX, Anderson AB, Guam, Hunter Field, GA, Myrtle Beach AFB, SC, Torrejon AB, SP, Wheelus AB, Libya, Brookley AFB, AL, and Lincoln AFB, NE. His active duty assignments were far ranging from security, sentry dog handler, law enforcement, and IG Inspector. John was awarded several decorations, most notable the Airman's Medal for Heroism, Purple Heart, and Bronze Star. After retiring from active duty, he was a Deputy Sherriff, civilian guard with the Defense Electronic Supply Command, and Department of Air Force Civilian retiring in 1992 as a GM-0080-14 from Aeronautical Systems Command. John was active in several community organizations and will be dearly missed by his wife Carol, children Karen, John III, and Michael, along with his biggest fans 7 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. INFORMATION REQUEST My name is Jeff Lozier Im looking for some information on the 633d Combat Support Group. My father Edwin Lozier was stationed Pleiku Air Base in 1969-70. I'm not sure what the unit was but he was in some sort of supply. He was a staff sergeant when he left Vietnam. I am currently serving in the USN and got him a flight jacket, and looking for a unit, division or command patch for it and would just like some info for myself. I have looked on the internet and the only thing I can come up with is 633d Special Opperations Wing. Any info would be helpfull. Thank you in advance for your help and time.

My name is Dan Reed. I am a historian and military history teacher in Oberlin, Ohio.
Spc. 4 Bob Towles, DSC (Delta Company 2/7 Cav) gave me a lead to talk to someone from the 1st AC who flew out of Pleiku in Nov. of 1965 in air support for the 2/7 cav at Lz Albany. I am in the process of working on a project that stems from an earlier project I worked on with veterans from the 2/7. Please see video link to see the film we made on their recollections: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpbOPdtXFz8 A Walk in the Sun I would like to talk to a pilot on this subject (air support of the 2/7 at LZ ALBANY) Do any of your members have information from November 1965 who would have flown in support of LZ ALBANY? Thank you for your time. Dan Reed E-Mail: dreed92@hotmail.com
