Interview of U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Joseph M Valenti, Commander of 618th Military Airlift Support Squadron about the impact of C-5 in South East Asia, conducted at U-Tapao Royal Thai Navy Airfield, Thailand. The Colonel starts to answer a question and fluffs his line. He contrasts the short time airlift takes to deliver to a war zone, with that required by surface shipping in the past. Colonel Valenti discusses the difficulties of operating with personnel who are on one-year tours of duty in a war zone. He stresses training as the key to successful operations. In his discourse, Valenti fluffs his lines several times, and asks if they should continue with the filmed interview (which they do).
