Cordry On December 21, 1970 at Phouc Vinh, Vietnam two helicopter pilots, CW2 Arthur R. Cordry and CW2 Ric Wilken, despite their personal injuries and with total disregard for their personal safety entered a CH-47B Chinook helicopter that was totally engulfed in flames and pulled me to safety. Had Art and Ric not pulled me from the burning helicopter there is no doubt what-so-ever I would not be writing these words of thanks and gratitude as the helicopter was a total loss. I would like to ensure that the family and heirs of Arthur R. Cordry know that Art went way beyond the call of duty and is a true HERO. Because of Arts action I have lived a full and rewarding life. I have four children and four grandchildren and we all are grateful for his actions. Sincere gratitude and thanks to Arthur R. Cordry from Joe Hocamp and family. THANK YOU ARTHUR R. CORDRY YOU ARE A TRUE HERO
