Fritzche Airfield Watertower

My father was the commander of this airfield during the Vietnam War.   I remember being a teenager and looking over towards the airfield and seeing this tower, knowing my Dad was working there.  This tower is coming down this week and it makes me feel a little sad.

I to remember that tower and it makes me very sad to hear that it it coming down. I remember many times going there with my mom to pick up my dad after his day of flying. I am very proud of him and his service to our country.
