Tech. Sgt. Antonine A. Kriston provides communications for the United States Defense Attache Office with a radio-equipped jeep during the evacuation of Saigon, May 1, 1975. His Air Force Communications Service team consisted of Tech. Sgt. Benjamin F. Scott, Staff Sgt. George L. Pappas, and Staff Sgt. Stephen A. Blyler. By April 28, 1975, attacks on Saigon had become so heavy that the team was ordered to evacuate. Two of the men, Kristol and Blyler, volunteered to stay to support the U.S. Marine guards. They were airlifted by helicopter shortly after midnight on May 1, 1975, and were the last Air Force personnel evacuated from South Viet Nam.
