7th Airlift Platoon


7th Airlift Platoon" (Provisional) Call sign "Snow White" is one of the units mentioned in the VHPA Directory. The platoon was formed in late 1967 as a classified unit in Ft. Riley, KS, it's first designation was "P-001". The unit was deployed to Korat Thailand in February 1968. We were direct supported for the 46th Special Forces Company and also supported USARSUPTHAI. I understand the 7th was later totally assigned to the 46th Special Forces Co (but that was after my time)
