ORAL HISTORY #8 DATA CARD

A-10 AIRCRAFT BATTLE DAMAGE REPAIR IN OPERATION DESERT STORM

by DR. CRAIG W. H. LUTHER

This is a data card for the Oral History 8

I have an original hard copy of the Oral History #8 document in soft paperback book form, which is a format very difficult to copy in order to turn into a PDF file.  I will attempt to find the entire Oral History document on-line or e-mail the Air Force History Index organization and try to get a copy that way.  I am one of the persons interviewed in this historical document and would like to post it if possible.
