Here is what I think is a really good picture of my good buddy A2C John Fisher (2nd from left) with his good
buddy Nick, an F-4 Phantom Mechanic, taken at the main gate at Biên Hòa. I like this picture because there seem to be too-few close ups of our Vietnamese counterparts.  John and his buddy were both from Uniontown, PA.
