Col Maurice Seaver

Last Updated 18 July, 2003

Col 'Mo' Seaver was involved in the F-111 Program from 1967 to 1977.
Lt.Col.Tom Lacey was the 347th TFW wing commander untill the F-111A's moved to Korat,and then Mo Seaver took over as Commander.
Col Maurice E. Seaver, Jr.,took command of the 347TFW on 21 Sep 1974 until Col Russell E. Thoburn, took it on 22 Mar 1975.
Previous to that, he was a F-105 combat veteran who had shot down a MiG-17 and himself was shotdown by 'flak' over North Vietnam.
Below are images supplied to in 2002 by his son William L. Seaver, Commander, USN Ret. Will says that his father was a hoarder of memorabilia, some of which Will graciously has passed onto to enable this webpage to be constructed. Will is in poor health and would like to have anyone who knew his father during the Korat days contact him .
Mo Seaver passed away in 1997
