Scotty -- Friend & Mentor

With the passage of all these years, Scotty will always be young, vibrant, and laughing in my heart.

I was his final pilot and like to believe his friend. Far more experienced that I, he taught me to be a good aeroscout. Yes, I remember his joy in life and the shared excitment we lived in our most dangerious task. Under his guidance, we became one of the best aeroscouting teams in Vietnam.

In more recent years, I have struggled to keep him alive in all our memories. To this end, I wrote a novel, "Red Bird Down" which included many of our "adventures." This work is dedicated to Scott that long after I am gone, he will live on and everyone who has a copy will have his picture on the dedication page.

Sadly, I need not close my eyes to remember the day he got shot. Always cool in a crisis, he managed to squeeze off the squirting blood. Destroying our aircraft in the process, he held on till we got to the aid station. Sadly, a few days later he passed on.

I never got to say good by.

Scotty, I'll always love you as mentor & friend

Remembering Scott Neal Stanton

In 1965, when we were both 17 years old, Scott & I worked together at Ontra Cafeteria, in Van Nuys, California. I'll always remember his smiling face and his wicked sense of humor...he always made me laugh. I think that we even had a couple of innocent dates. When I learned of his death, I was shocked and saddened. In 1986, I was fortunate enough to visit the Memorial Wall, and made a tracing of Scott's name. His memory will live on forever.
