The archives contain numerous Vietnam–era holdings, particularly Warner Robins Air Materiel Area (WRAMA), Contemporary Historical Evaluation of Current Operations (CHECO), Corona Harvest, and Strategic Air Command (SAC) documents, histories, and studies. Among the other primary source items are messages, letters, and memos among key political, military, and WRAMA players who participated in the AC-119 story. They also include military situation reports; end-of-tour reports; site team reports; mission reports; background reports; command, service, and secretary-level briefings; statements before Congress and other government agencies; speeches; press releases ; and transcripts. The vast majority of these primary sources were found in the files of government agencies such as the State Department and the Defense Department, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, including the Committees on Foreign Affairs and Armed Services—Departments of the Air Force, Army, and Navy, as well as the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
