thanks russ, we watched spook and the other gunships work on any given night and were very happy they were up there protecting us, even got to watch the tanks work but not so often. they were definitely a sight to behold and i still dream about them only not so often these days. was very glad when andy clued me in to this site.

Thanks for registering for the reunion, Greg. You will certainly meet a lot of new buddies and hopefully reconnect with some old ones...what a blast that is. We are on track to having the best attended reunion of all except the Wash., DC event. We have a crowd of over 80 people if all who have registered make it in October (46 registered plus guests). And we are still 2 1/2 months out. Given the number of people who usually wait until a little closer to the reunion to sign on, we expect a handful more registrants, whatever a handful is. This is going to be one of the best yet.
Jack is working hard to try to find some of the Red Cross "Donut Dollies" to attend, and might have found one who perhaps knows of more we can invite. I have come to know an Air Force guy who was maintenance crew member on one of the "Spooky" gunships. If you never saw Spooky in action, you missed a real show. I have invited him to attend since he is a Vietnam vet. Don't know yet if he's coming.
Looking forward to seeing all in October.

Thanks Joan, sorry you can't make it. If things change we would love you to be our guest!

Thank you for your invitation to your 2015 reunion. While I can't attend, I do want to thank you for your service in Viet Nam. Like so many, I would have been lost without safe, reliable helicopters.

Thanks !

June 6th. 71 years ago today Allied forces landed at Normandy. Casualties were extremely high. Remember the brave men who stormed France today.

Happy Memorial Day to all. Never forget the meaning of the day.

On January 29th of this year I rode with Tom and Jack McCabe to Fort Jackson, South Carolina to attend the Graduation Ceremony of Neil McCabe's Stepson Stephen Elswick. Very moving and the last time I had been to Fort Jackson was at my Graduation Ceremony in January of 1971. I am really looking forward to seeing a Marine Corp Graduation at Parris Island.

And I hope everyone has a good day on Memorial Day and remains safe and content. Thanks, Bill, for the reminder about the flags. Important info to remember. It is about those for whom we fly at half staff.
Russ Mason on May 22, 2015 at 12:16 PM said:

To explain the Marine thing, Fort Jackson is just too long of a trip from Charleston and Parris Island is doable in a morning time frame, AND we can afford the busses. I attended a graduation ceremony at Parris Island a couple of years ago for a third cousin and I was extremely impressed and very proud of each and every one of those young people. I was still taken back to basic training hearing the cadre barking commands and the troops responding as if a machine. I feel certain the slightly different uniforms won't matter to anyone.
Bill Biggs on May 22, 2015 at 7:50 AM said:

Not sure I understand the Marine thing. Army now that is what its about.

Memorial Day is almost here. For those who proudly fly a U.S. Flag on their flag pole, remember Half mast till noon the Flay it high the rest of the time. Happy Memorial Day, a day to remember our fallen Brothers and Sister. R.I.P. and Thanks.
