Stories of Sacrifice and Dedication Civil Air Transport, Air America, and the CIA
Stories of Sacrifice and Dedication: Civil Air Transport, Air America, and the CIA examines two unique stories that exemplify the sacrifice and dedication that the CIA inspires in its officers: Lima Site 85 – a covert radar site in Laos, and a CAT flight to recover an agent inside Communist China.
The booklet and DVD contains essays, speech transcripts, excerpts from the CAT Bulletin – the official newsletter for CAT—and other materials that illustrate the measures taken to support Agency officers. Lima Site 85 explores the construction, use, and fall of a covert radar site in Laos that allowed the United States to bomb North Vietnam.
