Book Cover Photo:
Col. Benjamin H. King, the first commander of 4400th Combat Crew Training Squadron, better known as Jungle Jim, in Vietnam in December 1961 with the detachment that carried out the Farm Gate operation. King is wearing the hat that became the trademark of the air commandos, the organization that evolved from the 4400th CCTS. King is considered one of the founders of the air commandos, and the auditorium of 9th Special Operations Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, is named in his honor.
