NCANG C-124 during Vietnam conflict

This is a photograph of two NCANG C-124 crews in the Philippines. The story, as told to us, is that a crew was at a refueling stop at Clark AFB, needing an engine replacement. Due to time requirements for the change, another crew was sent to pick up the stranded crew. They all purchased the same hats and decided to take a photo before continuing home. These are names given for this photograph. First row: (left to right) Major Jim Cox, Navigator Col William T.
