Those who supported us in many ways-- sometimes for little pay and often with minimal thanks.
Note: The spellings of names, years, etc., is very problematical.
The Webmaster needs a lot of help.
[NB: The years "(67-73)" are used for most many of those listed because that from when the new studios were opened to the closing of AFVN in March 1973. If anyone can give me anything different, it will be most welcome.]
Go to Group Conversations / Vietnamese Local Hire to see some of the background behind this list.
Ms. Rose Swan Engineering (67-72)
In 1971 she was possibly "senior" to all of the other clerical help. It is also possible that due to slow stand-down and closing of the station, Rose Swan was transferred from the Engineering Section to the Admin Office sometime in late 1971 or early 1972. [See Ron Turner's comments under the above link.]
