CAPTAIN GLEN VAN INGEN


Military Officers Association of America
Glenīs lecture in Hawaii
Glen van Ingen has an impressive
career and has flewn among others
with ONA and Air America as a Pilot.

Adventure, intrigue, danger, sacrifice-- words that fit Air America well. Air America was a CIA owned and operated "air proprietary" during the Cold War against the global menace of communism. From 1946 to 1976, Civil Air Transport (CAT) and Air America served alongside U.S. and allied intelligence agents and military personnel in the Far East, often in dangerous combat and combat support roles. Behind a shroud of strict secrecy, many Air America personnel were unaware that they were "shadow people" in counterinsurgency operations. Some 87 of them were killed in action in China, Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and elsewhere. Though many of those Asian countries eventually fell to the communists, the contributions of Air America personnel to the cause of freedom remain unparalleled in aviation history. CAT and Air America personnel were the first Americans in China and Korea and, after the U.S. military had withdrawn from Vietnam, Air America pilots risked their lives to evacuate the last Americans. Air America -- "First in, last out”.
