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.
The CAT flight resulted in the capture and 20 year imprisonment of Jack Downey and Richard Fecteau.
