4:12   |   Was the war in Vietnam a mistake? Tom Fleming was there and he believes it was important to show the large communist powers that we would not let their efforts around the world go unchecked.

    From the beginning, Tom Fleming wanted to be a fighter pilot. He settled for a tour as a forward air controller in Vietnam and, after that, his quest for fighters continued as he embarked on a lengthy Air Force career. That career took him to Turkey, Germany, many stateside bases and the Pentagon, but it was Hawaii that was most satisfactory.
