COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Paul Curs | 20th Tactical Air Support Squadron - Air Force

4:46   |   FAC pilot Paul Curs usually worked with Air Force fighters but one day he was working with some Navy A-7s. He wouldn't clear any pilot to go ahead and attack unless the pilot could see him. That way there would be no mid-air collision. He received that assurance so he gave the go ahead. It was nearly the last thing he ever did.
