An image that’s become synonymous with the fall of Saigon and the final days of the Vietnam War features a lone helicopter on the rooftop of a building with dozens of people lining up to be evacuated. The day that photo was taken, April 29, 1975, saw the Americans stage a mass evacuation in Saigon as North Vietnamese forces approached the city. Flying the UH-1 Huey featured in the iconic image was Air America pilot Bob Caron.
Dick Campbell, EAA 101097, doesn’t consider himself a historian, but rather a “student of history.” Dick remembers hearing about the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, when he was a child in Indiana and from that point forward he began scrapbooking anything he read about World War II. Dick attended Butler University and after graduating joined the U.S. Air Force as a pilot for the Strategic Air Command from 1955 to 1957, flying the KC-97.
Since the United States entered World War II following the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, countless American soldiers have gone missing in action during wars and conflicts. Many of these soldiers were never found and their families didn’t receive the closure they deserved. The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Missing In Action Recovery and Identification Project is working to change that one soldier at a time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
