Comment: I'm glad to see that Jerry Huffman has begun to reconnect with those he served with. Jerry was crew chief on 2nd flt plt slick Gladiator 167. I had the honor of being his door gunner on many occasions. Jerry, do you remember who our peter pilot was on the Aug 30, 1968 rescue of the folks on that medivac ship which was shot down on Hill 1258. Our AC that day was Capt. Edward Gast.

Comment: David Tuggle, I am the only Capt. that flew with the Cougar Gun Platoon from Oct 68 thru Aug 69. I was the Gun Platoon Leader. I was flying with Fred Brown as my co-pilot, but cannot remember the Crew Chief and Door Gunner names when we were shot down over Laos. I remember that we had just gotten the aircraft about a month earlier and the Crew Chief and Door Gunner had worked very hard to shine up the aircraft, then we go and get shot down.
