Beyond 100 Missions North

  • By
Some customs of "100 Missions up North" spread beyond completing a 100-mission tour over North Vietnam. Airmen that did not fly most (or any) of their missions over the North directly copied the design of the original F-105 patch, while others used the idea of a mission tally in a humorous way. The tradition even continued beyond the Southeast Asia War.
