  1. Do you have a copy of the Southeast Asia anchors? If so, how do I access? I have a war story of maybe the closest near miss in history of USAF involving 8 planes and maybe 25 crewmembers. The tail of my aircraft could not have missed another tanker by more than a few feet. Only luck or the grace of God made my co-pilot look out his right window while we were refueling 5 Pre-strike F-4’s in 1971 0r 72. He should have received a medal, however, a lot of rules were broken to get that close and we just kept it quiet. I have had many nightmares over this close call, we were not even wearing our chutes or helmets.
