Robert F. Gadd III
Bob Gadd flew the F-100 from 1960-1961 with the 7th Tactical Fighter Squadron/49th Tactical Fighter Wing out of Spangdahlem AB in Germany.
The following is from Cade Martin’s beautiful photo site featuring Vietnam War Veterans. Here’s what Bob Gadd had to say “Finally, on December 19th, 1972, we were allowed to take off our gloves and fight. The North was stalling on attending the Paris Peace Talks, so we were ordered to go “downtown” (Hanoi), and hit them with everything we had. After eleven days, their white flags went up and they agreed to the terms of the Peace Accords. I still feel we let them off too easily.”
