  23d Tactical Air Support Squadron Forward Air Controller
At the beginning of 1966, the arrival of Colonel Johnston and his initial group of Crickets marked the first step that converted the small jungle clearing of NKP into the most important installation against the North Vietnamese use of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Central Laos. The FAC's served as support for tactical squadrons interdicting supplies on the trail. Following a 29 April 1966 request from USAF Captain John C. Taylor to Mr. Walt Disney, the squadron patch featuring Jiminy Cricket was designed by the people of Walt Disney Productions. Unit call sign was "Nail".
