Sharing Individual

I served with Lt Col Codding in the 815th Air Div Command Post. Will always remember his sharing of goodie boxes from home with all his co-workers. What a shame to be killed while waiting to go home. His original flight home was cancelled.

Remembering Colonel Codding

I went to Vietnam in December 1967 and was assigned to the 834 Air Division. Colonl Codding was one of my bosses at the Headquarers group. I remember him as a kind, caring, anv very well liked individual. We were all in shock when we heard about his untimely death.
