The following pictures were the property of CW2 Jim Ozbun. He came to the unit as a replacement pilot in January 1968 with the infamous "dirty dozen". He and 11 other new pilots were the first replacements for the unit. Jim was my roommate from his arrival until I was transferred in late August 1968. He was a very friendly guy and we shared many good times together. Jim was killed in action on December 24, 1968. These pictures came as a result of e-mail contact with Jim's brother. Ed Ozbun found my web site and sent an e-mail asking about his brother. We established contact and he has been kind enough to share some of the photos that were returned to Jim's family. I sincerely thank him for sharing these with us!
