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.

Historically, for your family, you can go back to the Archives website and request (for free) duplicate copies of all of his medals.

While the outcome, unfortunately, isn't what you hoped - you've now got a fairly good idea as to how to get some of these military records. If you've got any questions, email me at
