More detail on this person: Thomas J. Demase was one of my Aircraft Commanders in Vietnam. I was a crew chief on aircraft the he flew frequently. He transferred from the 57th Aviation Company (Pleiku prior to 02/71). I'm not sure who the 57th belonged to but he flew UH-1Cs with that unit. He came to 238th Aerial Weapons Company, 1st Aviation Brigade, on about 02/71 and flew with them until he separated on about 11/71. He flew UH-1Cs with them also. He made CW2 around 06/71 so that was his rank when he separated.
