My name is Bill Spurgeon, I held the 1-0 position on RT Texas at CCC from Jan-Oct 1970. I wanted to give you a little history of RT Texas and offer some changes to your website.
In July of 69, RT Texas captured a POW. In August 69 the team was basically deactivated due to reassignments, people leaving and one medevac. There was no RT Texas from August 69 until Jan 70 when Glen Uemura and I reformed the team.
During the time I was 1-0 (Jan 70-Oct 70), the following persons were assigned to the team. Obviously, some remained on the team after I left
Glen Uemura, 1-1, Jan 70 – Apr 70
Ron Mattocks, 1-2, 1-1, Mar 70 – Feb 71
Clarence Hebron, 1-3, Feb 70 – Mar 70
John Good, 1-1, Jul 70 – Sep 71 (John took over as 1-0 after I left on Oct 70
Don Green, 1-3, Jul 70 – Dec 70
Marion Windley, Strap-Hanger, Oct 70 – Nov 70
Peo Rahlan remained the 0-1 / Interpreter from Jan 70 – Sep 71
The RT Texas Team Patch on your website is a fake. I have enclosed a photo of the actual team patch Uemura and I designed in early 1970. I had the patches made in Taiwan while I was on a CCK flight.
