War Story:
While looking up information on two members of my unit in Vietnam, I found something that may not be exactly accurate. As I remember it Warrant Officers Donald Harold Richardson and Thomas Marvin Bonine had caught a ride from Phu Loi to Phuoc Vihn. They were killed on a subsequent return flight, on take off, from Phuoc Vihn. From: Fred Baker
