From Da Tech Guy, Detroit 1967: Riot or rebellion?

Last week an ominous anniversary passed, as I note in my weekly post at Da Tech Guy. Detroit 1967: Riot or rebellion?

I had a very small part in this story. As a USAF Aircraft Maintenance Officer I was deployed with a detachment of aircraft mechanics to Selfridge Field to support C-130 transports that were bringing men and materiel in to support riot control efforts of Federal forces. I recall that units of the 101 Airborne Division were brought in, fresh from service in Viet Nam, but were not allowed off the base. We never left the base and knew very little about what was happening in MoTown.
