COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Joe Richardson | 497th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 8th Tactical Fighter Wing - Air Force

5:52   |   Just as he was finishing flight school, Joe Richardson contracted Valley Fever, a respiratory illness connected to fungus in the soil in that part of Texas. It set him back because it took a while for the doctors to figure out what he had. He recovered and continued in his training as a fighter pilot. Finally, he was headed to Southeast Asia.
