Gary e Wilson, 57th AHC Doorgunner, Kontum RVN-68/69

I am happy to say jerry was a friend, his job was helicopter mechanic, but he loved flying . we traveled to kontum together in April 69. When ever he had the chance he'd volunteer for a doorgunners seat. On the night of his death we ( 4 choppers) spent the day helping a SF team near Dak to. We were unable to get the team out due to bad weather in the mountains, so we sat at Dak to until night fall. The mission was scrubbed, so the crew of the 4 ships got together and we decided to fly back to Kontum. Jerry was on the 4th ship and I was on the 3rd. In flight we ran into really heavy rain and very low visibility. Due to very bad weather conditions we had to come in with the help of radar. After landing in Kontum, radar reported only three ships came through them pass. The CO came out, jumped on my chopper, we went back on the other side of the mountain, Jerry's ship had crashed, 4 souls lost!

PS
Very happy to see his face again
