For date 690331

326 MED 101 ABN was a US Army unit
Primary service involved, US Army
South Vietnam
Location, Camp Eagle
Description: The Air Ambulance Platoon monthly newsletter reported on going on R&R, a 2 1/2 ton truck parked on the hill above them slipped the grip of its brakes and rammed into the battalion supply building. SP5 Roy M. Mayberry was shot in the foot during a hoist mission, the first combat injury this unit has had since last August. He expects to be in the hospital a few weeks. The CO's words were neat: 'The beautiful scenery of the A Shau Valley, further arranged from numerous B-52 strikes, has been the topic of conversation this month, with all our crews getting frequent opportunities to check on the day-to-day changes in the bomb craters. Flight crews have taken such a liking to the scenery that we no longer land for medevacs but instead use hoists that are overtaxed by use in 83 missions for 155 patients and are rapidly wearing out. With typical 'No Slack' enthusiasm LTC Charles Dyke's 2/327 Inf Bn has built us a field standby helipad at his CP on FB Fury, our only available helipad in the western AO. Through this undertaking we are able to swoop from our lofty mountain peak evacuating patients from the Valley in true Eagle Dustoff fashion.
