Abstract:

The Red River Valley Association RRVA originated in Thailand in 1967 when aircrews gathered to devise better tactics for use on airstrikes into North Vietnam. The organization was later chartered in the United States to commemorate the camaraderie that developed among aircrews who flew in combat over North Vietnam. The organization later expanded its objectives to include active participation in POWMIA affairs, support of POWMIA families, and discussion and debate of aerospace issues. The report traces the development and activities of the RRVA, and its relevance in todays and tomorrows Air Force.
