The names definitely change over time and unfortunately, both sides will usually have a different one. If you're trying to be 100% correct, it might be quite of a pain in the ass. There are names on the front ldg door too by the way

Here's a photo from 2008 with LTCOL R. C. FRIEDMAN "BOO" on the port side.

After some googling, the photo you posted should read MAJ GEN T. L. CONANT ?? MAW, not sure about what's there in front of MAW. CO? FO? Usually, you can google these names or abbreviations to figure out the corrent spelling.

This photo from 2010 has COL K. J. KILLEA with the rest kinda hard to read. It's also 400, not 200.

In case I find something concrete, I'll post it here.

Hello, friends. I need help - I'm looking for information about this airplane. I can not name the pilot, and what is written on the landing gear.

Thanks for the help!

Hope this is enough. There seems to be two different planes that wear similar schemes and both are CAG birds, but only 165403 says CAG on it. This is the CAG one that was in the pictures you posted.
