REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR GERALD MARTIN LUBBEHUSEN

Memorial Day 2024

I recall Lubbenhusen as the only one that could torque down the "Jesus nut" (main rotor retaining nut that holds the main rotor system to the Huey) by himself. He gave his life trying to help others save theirs. Rest in Peace Gerald!

Remembering Specialist Lubbehusen

Gerald worked for me in the service platoon as an aircraft repairman in the 92nd AHC before he transferred to a flight platoon as a gunner. He did not fly many missions, but his last was one that helped save the lives of many on a firebase that may not have survived the night unless CPT Dewey and his crew had not resupplied the firebase with ammunition and flares.
May you Rest in Peace on this Memorial Day and Forever.
