This gallant aircraft served with the 12th tactical fighter wing stationed at Cam Ranh Bay Air Base, South Vietnam. In the 1968-69 time frame it was assigned to Captain E.G. Shuler, Jr. (now Major General), Citadel Class of 1959 and First Lieutenant J.W. Reed. They flew the aircraft on many combat missions and General Shuler's wife's name adorns the nose. The aircraft's last assignment was with the Texas Air National Guard's 149th Fighter Interceptor Group at Ellington Air Force Base, Texas. It was flown on its final flight to Charleston Air Force Base on 29 November 1986 by General Shuler and Captain Gary Chesnutt, Citadel Class of 1981.

This distinguished fighter-bomber is dedicated to the Citadel graduates who lost their lives during the Southeast Asia Conflict. Their courage and unselfish dedication under combat conditions will always serve as the standard of noble commitment to freedom!
