“Finally, on Dec. 19, 1972, we were allowed to take off our gloves and fight. The North was stalling on attending the Paris peace talks, so we were ordered to go ‘downtown,’[Hanoi], and hit them with everything we had. After 11 days, their white flags went up, and they agreed to the terms of the peace accords. I still feel we let them off too easily.”––Bob Gadd, U.S. Air Force
