    Larry....i am hoping you can hlep me. i got a call yesterday about an USAF pilot whose Phantom was shot down in July 1966 north of the DMZ. he was supposedly picked up by a Marine helicopter....I checked the command chronologies of every unit i thought it MIGHT be to no avail. Nothing...although 363 was missing a CC for July 1966. Can you possibly make some inquiries and see if anyone knows/remembers anything about this incident?

    ,​I spent 6 hours searching CCs and 10 hours getting logged in to reply. Just paid my dues to POPASMOKE 2 months ago. This little episode has made my pussy hurt, and I don't have one. I am a old man not some computer GURU. By the way Larry Zok the 53 laying on its side om a hill was from 463, believe it was at LZ East and was transporting grunts from 196 LIB. LZ was on a hill and AC rolled off as parking brakes were not set, or so I was told HeHeHe
