Attention!! Good afternoon Gentlemen, I am Lt. Col. David F. Rogers, and this is my biography and post military history. 

I entered the USAF as a 2nd Lt. in July 1951. I attended USAF technical schools and was trained as a Command Pilot and a 141C Air Operations Staff Officer. I flew KC-97’s, KC-135’s , and C-130’s, prior to my reassignment to DM, AFB as your 100th AMMS Squadron Commander from Oct. 1971 through Sept.1974.

I was on three (3) TDY tours in Vietnam. I was assigned as a pilot at the Khe Samh Combat Base from January 1971 – September 1971. In 1971, Khe Sanh was reactivated by the US Army (Operation Dewey Canyon II) to support Operation Lam Son 719, the South Vietnamese incursion into Laos.

I was on two (2) TDY’s to Thailand. Once as a KC-135 pilot and once as your Squadron Commander.

After  I retired from the USAF, in September 1974, I returned to Flagstaff, AZ and began working for the State of Arizona as a Safety Officer for the Airzona State Compensation Fund.

It was wonderful serving with each one of you! Carry on gentlemen. Dismissed.
