    I posted this on the In-Country Forum and got no replys. I guess I should have put it on a 34 squadron site. Since I was with a 46 squadron HMM-262 and on return to the states at New River in 68 I checked into HMM-162 I thought I'd throw it at you guys. I know you were a 34 squadron in Nam. There were songs sung at the club at Ky Ha about 34's, one went: "Yo Ho Ho you and me flying all around in a 34D" the other went: "He may fly forever above the streets of Hue he's the man who never returned". Anybody out there remember the words? They were fun club songs that everybody joined in and sung along with after a few beers.

    I have heard the "He may fly forever above the streets of Hue he's the man who never returned" song

    It was sung to the tune of "Charlie on the MBTA" it goes

    "Poor ole Charlie, He may ride forever athrough the streets of Boston he's the man who never returned" .
    It is a 60s song poking fun at the price of the ride going up on the Boston MBTA and Charlie gets on and does not have the full fare.

      Tim,

      I served with HMM-262 from Jan 68 to May 68 in Quang Tri. When I returned stateside I went to HMM-162 at New River in Feb 69. Did you go on the Carib cruise in 1970 with HMM-162. I seem to remember a Tim Mc that worked in the HYD shop. Was that you??

        George I went on a Caribb Cruise with HMM-162 in 68 and got out in 68 just after the cruise. There must have been another Tim Mc bubblechaser that you knew.
