Cold War & Linebacker II River Rat Commemorative SAC Coin It seems fitting that this coin should become available on Memorial Day. This beautiful 2” coin commemorates two distinctive events linked forever in our proud nation's history. On the front side is the River Rats logo and the Strategic Air Command shield, boldly showing the mailed fist with lightning bolts and an olive branch clenched tightly. The motto of "Peace is Our Profession” is emblazoned across the top and SAC's years of existence, 1946-1992, is displayed at the bottom. The Cold War was won primarily through the deterrent efforts of the combat aircrew and ICBM missile warriors in this command. The flip side of the coin depicts a B-52, accomplishing its primary mission of delivering bombs while evading Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs) during the Vietnam Conflict's final campaign, Linebacker II. B-52s launched from two bases: U-Tapao Royal Thai Navy Airfield, Thailand and Andersen AFB, Guam. This was a maximum effort mission with a total of 729 sorties flown ‪from December 18‬ - 29, 1972, often dubbed "the Eleven-Day War". All of these were into Route PAC 6 against the most heavily defended targets around Hanoi and Haiphong. These missions earned these crewmembers the distinction of becoming Charter Members of the Red River Valley Association. These missions could not have been accomplished without SAC’s superb KC-135 Stratotanker Fleet, the many tactical aircraft of both the Air Force and Navy, and the thousand’s of ground support personnel who maintained, loaded, refueled, and kept everything running. Big salute to all of the aircraft maintainers and support personnel that did their job with dedication and professionalism. I and countless other crew dogs continue to enjoy our lives because you did your job... right... each time, every time. A total of 15 B-52s were lost with 26 aircrew rescued and 34 KIA/MIA. Another 33 crewmembers were captured and held as POWs in North Vietnam. The coin memorializes the call signs of those lost aircraft and the men who flew them. The Linebacker II campaign is credited with ending the Vietnam War and the return of 591 POWs. Anyone who would like to receive a free copy of this coin please email ron. [email protected]
I was an Air Force 208/1N3 linguist for 24 years, finally ending my career at Davis-Monthan, following 12 years in Germany and a tour at Goodfellow as the head Czech. I could swear at some point I was asked to join the AOC but dang if I can recall where or when. In any case, I'm glad you folks are here.
My Dad Cecil Post was an Old Crow... the guy who invented the teflon-slot antenna to get telemetry back from the V-2 rockets he and his pals were shooting at White Sands.
