Flying Razorback Flashback: Operation New Life

The first of many transport aircraft arrive at Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, Ark., on May 2, 1975. The transports were part of the Vietnamese Airlift also known as Operation New Life. The Vietnamese refugees were brought in through the 188th Tactical Fighter Group. The Indochinese refugees were then transferred to temporary housing at Fort Chaffee, Ark. May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and honors the contributions they have made in their service to the nation. A number of the refugees and their children went on to serve in the U.S. military. (Courtesy photo)
