Please help us take a moment to recognize another Platinum employee that fought for freedom in the long, and costly, Vietnam War.
Thank you for your service, Gene O’Brien, Sr.!
- Served in the Air Force
- Stationed at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas
- Sergeant with the 474th Combat Group , Tactical Air Command
- We took care of F-4 Fighters, F-105 Fighters, F-111 Bombers, and trained the Australian Pilots on the new F-111 Bombers. Our mission was to keep our aircraft up and flying. The more time spent on the ground could cause the loss of American lives.
- The sign over the main gate said, “Thru These Gates, Pass the World’s Best and Most Feared Fighter Pilots”.
- I have maintained friendships with most of the Airman I served with, and we all try to meet up every couple of years in Las Vegas.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, Platinum would like to thank all employees who have served our country and veterans worldwide.
