The original CD's came from the 46th/72nd Recon Association history files and records and were reproduced to provide and protect this history for the A.F.H.R.A., the Air Force Museum, and the members of the squadrons.
Many of these records and photos were used by Fred Wack in his book "The Secret Explorers" which is on file at the A.F.H.R.A. and the Air Force Museum.
Individual aircrew members and ground support members stationed with the 46th/72nd SRS provided historical information and photos to Fred Wack which he had in folders. These folders were reproduced onto the CD's.
One folder in the files, "The History of the 46th/72nd SRS" was prepared earlier for submission on Xerox Pagis publisher to the AFHRA at Maxwell AFB, AL and may not be readable by Microsoft XP Operating systems. All the folders and files were copied on Microsoft XP in JPEG or TIF format.
There may be duplication of photos, documents or folders as the material was copied as it came from the storage boxes. A lot was copied, as an attempt to make sure we got everything. Names and dates are copied from 61 year old (as of 2007) documents, so there may be errors. We used what was available and readable.
Please enjoy the CD's contents as you review the history of the 46th/72nd Recon Squadrons.
