More detail on this person: He had tour or so with Air America in Thailand/Laos. I have been told several different things (he died after coming home) but most recent is that he died in Southern California, early to mid 80's, in an emergency ambulance or rescue delivery/pickup in the Cajon Pass north of San Bernardino near the I15 interstate. I'm trying to pinpoint the date and would like any information.
