Mosquitos
6147 Tactical Control Group (The Mosquitos) Korea  

During all or portions of the 143rd's tour in Korea an Air Force unit had men assigned to Headquarters Battery. They were responsible with the control and coordination of artillery fire with close are support.

The Mosquitos were that unit during 1952. I am doing more research to see if they were there for the entire war or if other units shared that responsibility.

Here are a few pics sent in by Charles Hennessy of the Mosquitos
