More detail on this person: Steve - this is actually ALDERSON DAVID G. He died 2 April 2003 from pneumonia. We had recently recruited him to fly in the left seat of the "In the Shadow

of the Blade" Huey from Austin, TX to San Antonio carrying a 33 year old Vietnamese woman whose life he probably helped saved in Vietnam when she was less than a year old. It is a very heart warming story. See
