Korat part timers from 1970 added to personnel rosters :  SP5 William Goodwin, A1C Robert Nash, A1C Stanley Clayton   added  9/11

My father, Major James Reid Lapp, the former Network Chief in Korat in 1974 andlater the Commander of FEN in Japan, passed this morning shortly after midnight in Gloucester, VA.

I suppose that there might be a "Remembrance" website of some sort, but I figured that you would have better insight to this than I.
