Our association is open to personnel of all military branches stationed in the Pleiku area.
Pleiku Air Base Website Introduction
This websites design and its free hosting service has been donated to our Association by website developer David C. Dalton, son of Donald W. Meador, an EC-47 pilot with the 362nd at Pleiku in 1968-69. We thank Dave, and as well his wife Christine (who did a lot work on improving the quality of our photos), for the tremendous amount of quality work they have given this effort. This totally 'unsolicited' gift, to remember his father's and our service in Vietnam, will be forever remembered and enjoyed by our members, and as well, it will be a resource for non-member military and the general public to see and perhaps better understand through our personal memories, the events we were so close to those many years ago.
In 1988, four Pleiku Air Base veterans got together in a small town in Pennsylvania. During this backyard picnic, these men took up the task of searching for any and all veterans of Pleiku Air Base. This task, spearheaded by John Reiley and John Pike (633d Motor Pool), eventually led to the first official reunion of veterans of Pleiku Air Base in Bowling Green, KY. Since that time the association has located over 550 former officers and enlisted airmen and is continually searching for more members. This site is dedicated to John Reiley and John Pike. Without their persistence and dedication, the Pleiku Air Base Association would not exist.
