I just found this website. It contains the history of B-52 operations in Vietnam from 18 June 1965 until August 1973. There’s a good writeup and lots of pictures on pages 149 thru 167. (warning big downloads) https://media.defense.gov/2017/Mar/28/2001722969/-1/-1/0/04-ILL_HIST_CH08-CH10_(PAGES149-200).PDF My participation in these operations began with my first bombing sortie flown in October 1966. My last sortie was flown in mid December 1972, just before Linebacker. I had flown into North Vietnam prior to Linebacker, but not to Hanoi. There are many bombing operations mentioned in this account that I participated in during my first and subsequent tours over there. In November 1966 I participated in operation Attleboro, operation Cedar Falls in January 1967, and operation Junction City in February 1967. I flew many sorties in defense of Khe Sanh (Operation Niagara) from February 1968 thru March 1968. I recall the new scheduling procedure called Bugle Note that is mentioned in both articles. https://books.google.com/books?id=SgynyCanXQMC&pg=PA82&lpg=PA82&dq=Bugle+Note+bombing&source=bl&ots=itG2Vuiwnb&sig=ACfU3U196jSwz_xdH4n56ynGrlfQR9-RUQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwielOaEzdLnAhX4Ap0JHfucDZEQ6AEwD3oECAgQAQ#v=onepage&q=Bugle Note bombing&f=false Bugle Note greatly increased the efficiency of B-52’s in Vietnam. It allowed rapid target changes in response to enemy movement. A commander on the ground could almost change the target at the last minute as they observed enemy activity, and we could respond rapidly to the new enemy troupe location. It was a great success during the remainder of the war. Prior to Bugle Note, from late 1965 until Combat Skyspot was fully operational (1967), the average time from a commander on the round requesting a B-52 strike, until he got it, could be anywhere from a couple of days to as much as 5 days. This was due to several factors, not the least was US political involvement in the selection and approval of targets. Of course the Viet Cong were very mobile. So frequently the target box was empty by the time we got there. Then after Combat Skyspot came along, the time lag decreased quite a bit. And the political approval process was streamlined. But the VC were still getting away. The Bugle Note procedures greatly increased our effectiveness. With the Bugle Note procedure, we would takeoff knowing only the general location of our target. Inflight we would get a message, further narrowing down the target location. But the Combat Skyspot guys would then direct the actual bomb drop, based on the latest reports from the ground. On January 23 1968, the USS Pueblo was captured by the North Koreans. My crew was already on Guam when that happened. They told us to go into crew rest to fly a weapons loaded B-52 to Okinawa at Kadena AB. We had taken B-52’s to Okinawa for weather evacuations, but never a weapons loaded B-52. We landed at Kadena and the rest of my stateside base arrived there a day later. We sat alert prepared to fly a ‘special mission’ with Iron bombs, for two weeks. Then the Pueblo thing died down, and we started bombing Vietnam from there as mentioned in the first article. On 18 March of 1969 our crew flew the lead B-52 in the first ever B-52 strike in Cambodia. This started Operation Menu as mentioned in the article. I also participated in the Laotian bombing campaign mentioned in the article. My last tour ended just before Operation Linebacker in mid December 1972. I had bombed in North Vietnam, but never went to Hanoi. Just before Linebacker started, it was my crews turn to rotate stateside, in accordance with SAC’s no Permanent Change of Station policy. All our Vietnam tours were conducted as Temporary Duty tours, due to the necessity to maintain a nuclear alert capability during the entire period. I served 720 days over there, and flew 317 bombing missions.
