  The Pink Panthers       

Pleiku Province, II Corps, South Vietnam
  FSB Blackhawk

The 361st AWC retained the GS-21 mission which consisted of flying convoy cover for the 2/1th Cavalry Squadron in an AO between Pleiku and the Mang Yang Pass along QL 19.

Daily a light fire team would fly to FSB Blackhawk, located about half way between Pleiku and the Pass. During the times they were not flying air cover over moving convoys, they would be on a three minute strip alert at the FSB. This misison continued until approximately Nov 3rd when it terminated and was replaced by the II Corps Standby mission.
