    If it had not been for the bravery of the "chopper jocks" losses would have been tenfold more on the battlefields of Nam. Your bravery to sacrifice life and limb for those that needed your help is not forgotten! RIP Sir!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear WO Thomas Edward Adams, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    On December 31, 1967, a UH-1H from the 498th Medical Company (Air Ambulance) was in flight at 4600 feet MSL when the aircraft made a left turn and crashed into trees on a hilltop in the vicinity Dak Mong, 16 KM NE of Dak To City.

Cheney (KIA), crew chief PFC William D. Holland (KIA) plus an E5 medic who survived his injuries and was rescued. [Taken from vhpa.org]
