My Father, Major George Baden Waring, was a B-52 instructor/pilot who served two tours of Vietnam. He was assigned to fly as a FAC in his second tour and was shot down in August of 1972. After his death he had a building dedicated in his honor at Castle AFB, California, which was named The Waring Academic Center for Strategic Air Command. We are very proud of him. We would like to hear from any Vets who may have known or served with him.

From his daughter.

A Note from The Virtual Wall

Major Waring was not assigned to one of the US Air Force Forward Air Controller squadrons but rather to MACV's US Air Force Advisory Team 2, and from there to the Vietnamese Air Force's 120th Observation Squadron. He was killed when O-1G tail number 51-5096 was shot down in Quang Nam Province during the North Vietnamese invasion of the Northern Provinces in the summer of 1972.
