OK. He was USAF, with the 432nd Service Squadron. PACAF is "Pacific-Air Force". Nha Trang was in what we called the 'Central Highlands'...and area on the South China Sea in the middle of South Vietnam. In 1966, the AF was supporting a lot of the Army Special Forces units headquarted in Nha Trang...then moved to Ubon, Thailand where most of the bombing raids were done into Laos and North Vietnam.
