Subject: 8th SFG question and SOCSOUTH memorial
Gents, hope you can provide me some adult supervision pertaining to 8th SFG.
SOCSOUTH is putting in a memorial wall for all SOF killed in operations or
training in SOUTHCOM AOR.
I've heard about a crash in 1964 that was an Air Commando C-47 that had
14 guys from 8th SFG on it.
SOCSOUTH has told me they have no information on that crash for their
memorial, so I'm hoping to find some 8th SFG guys who may be able to help
find the names of the casualties.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
