W. T. Phillipson arrived Addis Ababa on 22 August 1968 and departed on 1 June 1970.

Bill was originally assigned as Crew Chief for the UH-1B's and UH-1H's but later transitioned to the C-47 (R4D) N17203. This picture was taken after he drove a Deuce and a half (2 1/2 ton) fuel truck for 48 hours with no sleep in order to beat the rainy season.

 There may be more flattering photos of Bill on this site, but I think this one represents him best.
