Camo Jungle uniforms were first in the supply system in 1968, & AF Security were the First to be issued the new camo uniforms.

Phu Cat was a Fantom base, & when I visted there in 1968 > thought I was back in the States > all buildings were red Brick, streets paved with street Lights, & concret Sidewalks > the AF was living good!
