34th Tactical Fighter Squadron Honor Roll and 100 Mission Scarf

The 34th TFS flew F-105 bombing missions over North Vietnam during OPERATION ROLLING THUNDER. This name board was started in 1968 by Capt. William Thomas of the 34th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 388th Tactical Fighter Wing as a tribute to the pilots in the unit. The unit also put the pilots' names on a scarf worn at 100 mission celebrations. 

Capt. Thomas flew 200 missions over North Vietnam--a remarkable feat considering the number of F-105 losses in Southeast Asia. Tragically, shortly after his tour, Thomas was killed on a test flight in an F-105.
