Comment: I'm so glad my parents generation was unstoppable bad a$$ and I'm proud of all of you reading these bits knowing the impact it made even if you came home and being named after one of your brothers that died in my fathers arms and he carried him just like the other guys was saying. Thank you all your my superhero's and I could only hope my life that I owe to you brave warriors could throw a little pride at you cause we owe you for every chance we get rise even though it pales in comparison to your achievements and sacrifices.

Comment: I saw where Larry Hicks would like to know what happened to the late James Hunsicker. I tried to let the family know in the 80's but the D.O.D. still had it as classified and suggested I keep it to myself. I would speak about it now but not on social media. with the interested family or friends. I can be contacted at 251-455-2911 in Alabama.

Comment: It's a very sobering experience and quite emotional when you carry one of your best friends to his final resting place. At the same time, the immeasurable sense of pride that is felt when you realize that all the other guys helping you are Vietnam Era Combat Helicopter Pilots, 15-20 years senior to you, many who traveled hundreds of miles to honor their friend. And for a moment I was that kid again surrounded by great men. What an honor to walk with such heroes. God Bless the Gladiators and all those who served with them in Vietnam.

Comment: For any of you that knew or served with Ken Morrison (October 1968-1969), I'm sad to report that Ken lost his battle with cancer on 3/10/2016. He is survived by his wife Nancy. Both Ken and Nancy Morrison were friends of our family and fellow members of our church when we lived in Pennsylvania. Ken and Nancy were both loving, caring and kind people that I'm grateful that I got to know and whom that I miss greatly (I haven't seen Ken or Nancy in years, sadly). And Ken entertained my fascination with aviation as a kid and helped foster it. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this moment, Nancy. God bless you and Ken.
Admin: We sympathize with the loss of your friend and our Gladiator brother
