John “Mom” Burgoon,

for compiling the contributions into Not One but Two Cookbooks! 

TACAMO Heritage Cookbook & Reel TACAMO Chow
 
REEL TACAMO CHOW (RTC) Cookbook history came from Steve Bug Malavolti proposed the cookbook idea in December 2009; now, over 11 years later, in October 2021, cookbook fruition. If the RTC cookbook were an aircraft, it would qualify as a Hangar Queen and a Special Interest Aircraft (SPINTAC) – not flown in 60 days,  60 months, or even 120 months! 
    
TACAMO Heritage Cookbook are hand typed recipes compiled from the following cookbooks:  

  • VQ-4 Officers Wives Club, Patuxent River, Maryland

  • VQ-4 All Wives Club, Patuxent River, Maryland

  • VQ-3 Officers Wives Club, Barbers Point Hawaii


Without his efforts, these cookbooks would still be tattered, torn, and scattered across the TACAMO world. The original cookbook artwork was retained to the best of TCVA’s abilities with some artistic license employed.

Another note:  John and Linda Burgoon donated half the cost of manufacturing to TCVA.
