Roll of Honor

Honor Roll of Korean War Veterans of the 18th Fighter-Bomber Wing, 1950-1953.

This list of 18th Wing veterans of the Korean War was compiled from many sources and with the help of many others.

Special thanks is given to the following individuals and organizations without whose help even this incomplete listing would have been impossible: Lt. Col. Duane “Bud” Biteman, founder of the 18th Fighter Wing Association and the first to begin gathering the names of Truckbuster Veterans. Also, Barry Agovino, Lt. Col. Kenneth H. Barber, Ross Bedford, Lt. Col. Grover C. Crocker, Lt. Col. Julian F. Crow, Mary (Frese) DeFranco, David Denfield, Charles R. “Bob” Grissom, George L. Jamison, Col. Edward Mason, Lt. Col. John McCann (Dallas Squadron member), Doris McKelvey, Col. Harry Moreland, Lt. Col. Richard H. Schiebel, Col. Fred L. Thomas, Major Joe Williams, and William J. “Bill” Wirges.

Pilots and Airmen of the 18th Wing killed in combat are listed in italics-bold faced.
