The orginal 509th Tiger as provided by Jim Kowalsky. "Legend" has it that this was the personal emblem of Col. McFadden, first Commander of the 509th RRG. These tigers were every where.
The following photos were taken after the North Vietnamese "Peace Delagation" took over Davis Station. They are posted on the History Page because they are a part of the history of the 509th RRG. I do not feel that they deserve a place of honor on our web site. I have very strong personal feelings when I see our enemy standing where we once worked and lived. The four phoots show two of the front gate area of Davis Station and tow of an NVA soldier in the billets area.
