Thanks for the rides!

“Stoney” could do things with a chopper that seemed impossible. In August of 1969, I was MPC Exchange Officer for the Battalion and got to pick a pilot to take me out to the Cav. Companies in the jungle to exchange their “funny money”. I chose “Stoney” because he was good! What a nice guy! I really felt safe with him at the controls. I was young like him, but he reminded me of a kid! Too young to be doing what we did!

Hey Stoney!

I was Lt. that you took on MPC exchange mission to jungle when I had just 5 days left in country. That was August of 1969. I knew you from before then and had requested you to fly me in and out of the jungle because I knew you were the BEST! I asked you why you kept on re upping for Vietnam and you told me you were saving money! I was so saddened to hear you never made it home. I'm still here, 73 years old, and don't know why...guess it all comes down to luck and the will of God. Thanks for the rides!
