My head is in lower right corner. I flew first mission with HMM-361 in Oct 1966. We inserted recons on first mission . My helicopter took 2 rounds in rear by tail just missing the cables running back their. JIm Botts a friend of my repaired holes. I was flying as gunner from H&MS -36.
I wonder does anyone know what Marine unit guarded the base. I was on guard duty in August 1966 when we spotted a Sandpan in the bay. We radioed and flares went up . I was assigned guard duty for week at the point overlooking the bay. WE furnished people but exterior guard was a grunt unit . I would appreciate if anyone knows , thanks Semper FI
I finished my tour with VMO-6 at QUang Tri February 1968.
Best C.O. there ever was. We would and did follow him into any mission. God Bless -Submitted by: Tom Warning [firstname.lastname@example.org] 2011-04-25
