More detail on this person: I don't know what unit Bob was with in RVN for sure but he was in the 8th Hel Co in Ft Bragg after flight school. I never saw him again until I got to B 227 , 11Air Assault in 1963. He was in A 227.. We were sent to the Dominican Republic in 65 when we finished the manuevers and they were getting ready to say they were the 1st Cav. Stayed there til July 66. He went to Ft Rucker to teach Instruments and got killed flying TH-13's at Rucker. I'm pretty sure he shipped out to RVN with the 8th TC.
