The weather, the built-in hazards of night refueling, target identification, and the mountains hiding in the dark are all enemies- and of course, there's the enemy, too. These pilots have a saying, "And if the big guns don't get you, the black karst will." But then back on top in the moonlight, a man finds brief moments to think his own thoughts before cracking a low ceiling back at home base.

    I was in Bien Hoa from Jan 67 to Jan 68 and in Ubon from Dec 71 to Dec 72. I usually try not to think about these times but small reminders once in awhile is ok.
