I think this is mine. It's been awhile and I don't have my DD214 handy. May be missing one or two.

I see your DFC and 9 Air Medals, just curious what aircraft and crew position? I was a C-141 Loadmaster but didn't fly during Nam time frame, I started in 1980. Regards, chieftd

By the way, thanks for your service!
