War Story:

While looking up information on two members of my unit in Vietnam,
I found something that may not be exactly accurate. As I remember it
Warrant Officers Donald Harold Richardson and Thomas Marvin Bonine
had caught a ride from Phu Loi to Phuoc Vihn. They were killed on a
subsequent return flight, on take off, from Phuoc Vihn.
