Comment: Thank you much for this gift. I spent a day talking to my cousins son, who is now flying Hueys for the AirForce. He had many questions about our times. It was a joy to tell him what was seen and done. Amd how different it was compared to nowadays. Without pictures and memories of all of this and all of you guys, I wouldn't have been able to talk with that young pilot. God bless you all.

Comment: I transferred from the 121st AHC in Soc Trang to the 57th AHC in April 1970. I was a gunner on Cougar (I can't remember the number) and Crew Chief on 66-00632 then switched to minigun operator on the first Cougar's Revenge in late November, 1970.(This was before Cougar's Revenge was officially created) I left the 57th the 20th of December, 1970. Welcome home everyone.
