missing mosquito
Hi, I'm sending this for my father, Arden Svoboda. He was a chef with the mosquito squadron during the Korean war.
He's not too computer savvy, preferring letters over email regarding correspondence. If you have a mailing list, or even a newsletter I could print out if nothing else I'm sure he would enjoy catching up with some of his comrades from his days in Korea.
If snail mail is a possibility, please contact me VIA my email address and I'll be happy to send you his home mailing address.
Thanks,
Arden "Jr"

6147th tac con gp
is it possible to get a list of the airmen who were stationed at Chunchon in the 1953-1955 time frame. I was stationed there during that period. I don't have the exact dates as I understand my records were destroyed in a fire. I was a crew member on the C45/47 that flew out of Chunchon. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Reply:
We do not have the ability to produce lists by date served. Also, the specialty codes are too broad to pull C47 crew.

will send pictures
i have found pictures of my father who flew t-6's in Korea.
Lt Cadle, John R Jr.
Retired as Lt Col. from Air Force in 1968
I found one where he is having a medal pinned on inside in front of the Mosquito display.
One with him in flight gear in front of a t-6.
And one in combat gear. in front of a hut.
more when I find them. when I find the letter where he gets an award for air strikes that had primary and secondary explosions, I will send a copy of that also.

Father flew with t-6 in Korea
I believe that John R Cadle Jr flew in the Mosquito sqd in Korea. I have letters from reunions and pictures of him next to a T-6 with winter gear on and a helmet.
Lt Col. Cadle, John R Jr. (retired) passed away on Aug 9th 2012.
He flew B-24s in WWII in the 93rd BG and then t-6's in Korea and then transports till he retired in 1968

I have not seen his name any where in the listings yet he has received numeous mailings and attended the reunions when it was in Seattle.

He said that he flew the T-6, then at a certain point they took his plane away, gave him a radio, and a jeep and sent him to the front lines with the army.

How to find out more info as your site is hard to navigate, and does not show people who flew the T-6 in Korea.

We do not publish lists of names, due to concerns of privacy.
Specific inquiries are replied to directly. Our data is not able to be searched for specific specialty, as it was created in the early days of personal computers and does not have the needed coding fields.

1 Lt Paul S Kovach
My father, 1 Lt Paul Kovach, served with the mosquitos as a pilot. He is deceased now, having died in 1993. I have several pictures scanned in that I would love to share with you.

I would appreciate it if you could share any information that you have on him, such as airfields where he served, squadrons, etc.

Also, the pilot in Bud Mcleod's picture looks like my father. Is there any way I could get in touch with him to find out if the pilot was my father?

If anyone reading this knew my father, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Thanks,
Fred
