Hello Vietnam
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:59:46 AM »
Fifty years ago today, on November 7th 1968 I was landing in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam starting my tour of duty. I was just another FNG wondering what the next year has in-store for me. Man, I had no fucking idea what was waiting for me. November 13th 1968 I found my way to D. Troop 2/1 Cav. Two days later I was flying in a LOH6-A scout helicopter hanging out the left front door with a M60 in my hands tempting fate as I flew low over the hostile skies of Vietnam. Thanks to some exceptional pilots I made it back to base after every mission.
