Arthur "Art" Roberts  SSgt, USAF  1968-69

SSgt Roberts was stationed at Tan Son Nhut but also served as a volunteer at AFVN.

I was an Air Force SSgt, stationed at Tan Son Nhut and worked with the 460th Photo Recon Sq.  Our outfit did the recon over North Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.  Since I am a ham radio operator (W5AER) and photographer, I naturally acquired an interest in broadcasting.  At AFVN Saigon, I usually did a day and a half a week, working on the TV side of things.  I helped get the studio ready for shows, and got to work the audio board from the 6 pm news to sign off.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and appreciate being allowed to do this.  During this time I did get to know a few of the guys.  Rick on the FM side is one in particular.  I was in country from May 68 to May 69.  I auditioned at FEN  Misawa AB, Japan, years earlier, but my voice just wasn't up to it. Thank you for allowing me to be on the list.
