Squadron Honor Roll
67th TFS Aircraft
Welcome to the new website for the 67th Fighter Squadron "Fighting Cocks" Historical Society
"Dedicated to the men, women, machines and missions of the 67th Fighter Squadron"
While official documents can provide us with historical facts and figures, its the personal stories that make history come alive. I hope you will spend some time reading about the 67th "Fighting Cocks". At the present time (January 2007) many areas of the website are sparsely populated, however three areas have substantial content: Guadalcanal, Vietnam-1965 and Linebacker II. I just added two new stories: the Xom Biang Ammunition Depot mission and Smitty Harris' POW Homecoming. Feel free to browse these areas as well as other areas underlined in the left column (i.e., site the navigation column). If you have any material to contribute to the site, contact me, Joe Snoy - all material will be duplicated and the original material returned.
Areas needing more information (especially pictures):
Read "A Bad Day at Son La" (page1, 2, 3, and 4) the personal story of Major Wesley D. Schierman, a 67th F-105D Thunderchief pilot, who was shot down over North Vietnam on August 28, 1965. Wes was captured and spent 7 1/2 years as a POW - read this part of his story 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. After his release he returned to his civilian life as an airline pilot for Northwest Airlines. On September 23, 2005 Wes was invited by the 67th to fly one more mission and "complete the landing" that he never made 40 years before. Click here to read about that event as it appeared in the Air Force Link - the Official Website of the United States Air Force. More post flight pics with wife and 18th TFW/CC and 67/CC.
Also for you F-105 fanatics, checkout my friend Gary Baker's outstanding F-105 website especially the graphics section where you can create your personal F-105D, F or G model. Gary has agreed to create a similar software application for the F4C Wild Wild aircraft which the 67th flew from 1971-1979.
Squadron Reunion Information: Stay tuned for announcements about future reunions or social gatherings in local areas.
