More detail on this person: My father served one tour in Vietnam flying Hueys and earned a DFC in doing so. It was 1963 and he also flew then Secretary of State McNamara on a tour when he was in country. Reuben Siberling was his crew chief and I have lots of pictures from war casualties to washing the birds while landed in shallow water.
