199th Fighter Squadron   click on photograph to enlarge

This photograph of some of the pilots of the 199th Fighter Squadron taken in the early 1960s posted on September 22, 2015. A request to help identify the pilots was part of the post.

Special thanks to Blackie Bell, George Kaneshiro, Roger “Big Daddy” Moore and a few others who named almost all of those in the photograph. Mahalo for taking the time to provide feedback.

1st row, left to right: Col (???) Blanchard (Air Force Advisor), Tai “Mynah” Hong, Robert Hinkley, Alexander “Blackie” Bell, Roger Clissold, Gerald Sada, Robert Duncan, Joseph “Primo” Ah New, Lloyd Hiraoka, Jamie or George Sato (?).

2nd row: Don Giddings, Harold Nagai, Jarrett “Deke” Carr, Kenny Fisher, Ross “Roscoe” England, Paul “Aimoku” Duvauchelle, Edward “Rick” Richardson, Melvin Yen, Jon Parish, Dusty Kuroda.

3rd row: Bob Dotson or Paul Giddings (?), Jim “Spike” Dykes, George Joy, Chuck Johnston, Robert Maguire, Padraic “Paddy” Evans, Lawrence “Cabby” Cabrinha.

Should have asked earlier, but can anyone help with the call signs?
