Site Mission: Provide Pararescue and Air Rescue History
Included in this subweb are some of the primary source documents I used to write my second book "All for One - The Rescue of Boxer 22" Virtually all of these documents were classified until 2001. They are stored at the AF Historical Research Agency and Joint Task Force Full Accounting. Now, for the first time, they are being made accessible to interested parties.
The official United States Air Force report called this SAR “Rescue at Ban Phanop.” But, to the hundreds of men who flew on this mission, it is simply known as “Boxer 22.” It was the largest search and rescue (SAR) mission in the Vietnam War that resulted in a survivor being rescued by a USAF helicopter. The recovery area was near the small village of Ban Phanop; located on the western side of Mu Gia Pass. American pilots knew this area well. It was frequently targeted for air strikes and it was one of the most heavily fortified enemy strongholds in all of Southeast Asia. Located on the border of North Vietnam and Laos, it was where supplies from North Vietnam entered the Ho Chi Minh Trail.
In 2006 I published two thousand copies of "All for One." It quickly sold out. In late 2010 second edition was completed that corrects some typo's, makes one correction and adds some new material. It was recently printed and is now available for $22.00 (includes 1st Class mail postage). Volume discounts are available for purchases of ten or more books.
If you would like a copy of this book or additional information, email me at email@example.com
