My Apologies
To those who have
Sent their names and additional information that I have not
added yet.
The project has become very large and even though I work on it almost every day, it is impossible for me to keep up.
I will continue to add the names and information as quickly as I can.

Thank You All
For Your Support

Helo pilot with HU-2
Before the ship returned to the US I transferred
to the Flag detachment aboard Springfield in
mid-August. It was my first deployment and I
realized that CVA's used the embarked helos
like toilet paper and we had to really look after
ourselves if we wished to stay alive.
Some of the stories...
