Commander Fred Platt Passes

Alfred G. “Magnet Ass” Platt, CPT USAF, Ret

1941- 2016


For those of you who spoke at Fred’s memorial service and would like to have your memories chronicled in the China Post 1 history, you can contact me at: historian@chinapost1.email. Thank you.  Most of you also knew Fred as Raven 47.  Fred’s notable contributions to the Secret War are documented in many online articles and videos including:

Ravens Part 1

Ravens of Long Tieng

During his service, Fred was awarded the Silver Star, three Purple Hearts, three DFC’s and 48 other decorations. Fred is survived by a brother, a sister, several nieces and nephews and many Brothers in Arms.  The Platt Family requests that you please not send flowers, that in lieu of flowers, donations should be made in Fred’s name to China Post 1.
