Athens, WI 54411
Our son Scott flew helicopters in Nam for five and a half years. I long to hear something from those men he flew with. Killed by a drunk driver shortly after being appointed to the War College on his way up to Washington D. C. by a fellow committing suicide. Scott had 207 air medals, DFC, purple hearts, Vietnam Repubic medals. etc. all with oakleaf clusters. Please--did you know our Scott?
Scott was in the 68th from mid 67 thru mid 70 continuously except for his extension leaves. returned to VN in Jan 71 in the 119th AHC for at least an additional year. He was probably the highest time aviator in the war. I have not heard of anyone who can top his stats.
From: Howard Smith 68th AHC 69-70
