I served in Vietnam from March of 1968 till March of 1969 as a helicopter pilot.

I was stationed with the 129th Assault Helicopter Company at Lane Army Airfield outside of Qui Nhon for five months in direct support for the Republic of Korea Division at Camp Enari near Pleiku. At different times during my year long tour I flew Slicks (troop carriers), Gun Ships and as a General's Pilot for two months.
