Welcome to AFVN - 1972

Picked up some wonderful documents, a 1972 welcome package to AFVN.  We had similar ones in Korea.

These were originally from Tom Peterson.  After DINFOS Tom was in the 82nds PAO shop and then to Saigon as a newsman, later being a part of Stars and stripes.  After discharge Tom spent 20 years at KCAU-TV in Sioux Falls.  We lost Tom to a car accident in 1994.

Charlie Tuna 1982

In 1982 it was much easier to stay Tuna'd.  AFRTS started sending two hour daily Charlie Tuna shows.
