From: Karen Johnson

To those of us who had the honor of serving with our fellow Outlaw in Vinh Long, Al Boniface was the epitome of the professional aviator, always steady and reliable, a calming voice in the chaos of an insertion. Although I knew him only a few short weeks before his DEROS, I knew him to be the consummate professional Warrant Officer, highly regarded by peers and by his commander, who relied on Al to function as C&C in his stead.
