More detail on this person: Scott Baker served with 161st Avn Company in 1967, B/123rd in 1967-1968. He covered me on many a recon. Great gunship pilot. I saw him at Rucker in the fall of 1969. I know he went home in 1968 - don't believe he ever went back. Nobody would know him by Scott. Everybody loved the guy ... called him "Foots".

From: Bill Staffa

His Huey engine failed on final approach to staging area. Crash landed on shoreline then slid into 20 ft of water. Dead on recovery.
