Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
SGT WILLIAMS, MAJ POPE, SP4 GAY, AND MANY OTHER IN THE COMPANY IN CHULIE, RVN FROM 26 APR 71 - 9 SEP 71. WE WERE SOLDIERS CREW CHIEFS , MG 11B INFANTRY DOOR GUNNERS ,AND PILOTS

Best Moment
WHEN THE NIGHT HAWK FLIGHTS ENDED AND WE RETURN BACK TO THE HANGERS IN CHULIE AIR BASE

   

Worst Moment
THE MANY DIFFENT TYPE OF EAGLE FLIGHT DROPPING OF TROOP INFANTRY INTO HOT LZ'S AND THE FIRE FIGHT, THE MANY HUEY UH-1H THAT WHET DOWN DUE TO GROUND FIRE FROM THE VC AND VIETNAM REGULARS, THE FALLEN SOLDIERS REMEMBER THAT WERE, KIA, MIA, WIA IT WAS HARD AND SAD TO TAKE SOMETIMES. AND ALLWAY WILL BE REMBERED BY US VIETNAM VETS THAT MADE HOME ALIVE

Chain of Command
WAS GREAT AND TO THE POINT

   

Other Memories
WAS THE RETURNING BACK FROM EACH MISSION WITHOUT BEING HIT OR FIRE APOND, AND STILL BEING ALIVE. ALSO THE RETURN BACK TO THE WORLD (UNITED STATES) STILL ALIVE BUT WITH MANY GOOD AND BAD MEMORIES OF THE FALLEN SOLDIERS
