Misty : First Person Stories of the F-100 Fast FACs in the Vietnam War
Misty is a collection of first person stories of 155 fighter pilots who flew in a special Top Secret mission during the Vietnam War. There has never been a book like this. These are personal stories are full of emotion, drama, tragedy and humor. Over nine million Americans served during the Vietnam War. Between 1-1.6 million were in combat, or regularly exposed to enemy attack. These are the stories of 155 men who were in heavy combat and shot at daily. This is book of the personal experiences of the Misty Forward Air Controllers who flew as F-100 jet "Fast-FACs" over North Vietnam. The Misty pilots often coped with danger, anger and frustration by employing irreverent gallows humor. The authors use fighter pilot language. These were difficult times in a long war. The men in this book flew in the Vietnam War, when they were in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. They are now in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. These are their memories. Join them as they attack SAM missile sites, AAA, truck parks and complete daring rescues of their downed comrades. Combat pilots, POWs, Medal of Honor winners - strap in, hold on and enjoy the ride.
