  • Wondering about a fellow flight student/friend

    While @ P-Cola for flight training (69-71), met up with a fellow student pilot who was from U of Ark (I think). His name was Dickie Driggers. After an illustrious training career, he was also in the Navy Choir and on the baseball team (we were on the last Goshawk football team), he was made to accept graduation and I think went to the west coast and subsequently WESTPAC.

    Anyone know about him after that?

    Dick Driggers went on to fly CH 46's on the west coast and then on to Viet Nam with I believe HMM164. He ended up at Mag 36 Sub Unit 2 in Atsugi Japan where he crashed a CH 46 at Yakouska. He received the Life Saving Medal for his actions after the crash. He also played football for the MHTG 30football team and made the 3rd MAW allstars who played in and won the Hula bowl in Hawaii in 1971. I lost track of him but heard he may have gone to Pensacola.
