Gentlemen,

Just need to touch base with you all before I finalize this book project for publication. I'll be sending the results of this huge undertaking, U.S. ARMY HELICOPTER NAMES IN VIETNAM, to the publisher at the end of December 2010. It's taken six years to gather 2,900 copter "names" that crews & pilots painted on their rotor aircraft between 1962-73.
This compilation of "names" can only be termed a success when ALL the names get recorded. I believe that what I have collected to date represents the MAJORITY of those that were inscribed and painted on our in-country birds. Posterity will safeguard those that are saved for history. Those that go un-recorded will regrettably chip away & erode our collective in-country legacy. Thank you gentlemen and fellow veterans, let's also welcome home some of our long lost aviation history. John Brennan, former SP5, 114 AHC, 1970-71, Vinh Long AAF, Mekong Delta.

Admin reply: John, thanks for your hard work. I hope that at least some of the 192nd AHC aircraft made the cut.

Regards, Bill Cope, Polecat 24

Admin reply: Don't know about Edwards, but "Weird Eli" would be Bruce Whitney. You can find his contact information on the Muster page of this website.

I was tiger shark from Fort Riley, Kan to VietNam. I celebrated my 25th Birthday October 1967 in VieNam. I was wonded in flight during Tiet and my crew had me in a field hospital within minutes. I made it back State Side and worked as a flight instructor in Georgia until 1970. I sure would like to find the crew I was with on that day. The door gunner broke back my seat, pulled me out and stopped the bleading. [I did not even know those seats would break back]. I am sure he must have saved my life. Please foregive me because I do not remember you names.

Admin reply: Stephen, welcome home! Perhaps some of the members of this website that were Tiger Sharks at the same time can help to jog your memory with aircrew names.

Gentlemen,

Looking for individualized "names" that were painted on in-country Army copters 1962-73. I'm closing in on the 2,800 "name" count so far collected, documented and cataloged. Book is to be published and readied for Spring 2011. Hundreds of never-before-published pics and "name" database will be contained in a 2-vol set. Contributions and input welcomed. Respectfully yours, John Brennan, former SP5, 114 AHC, 1970-71, Vinh Long AAF, Mekong Delta

Hey does any one remember the crop dusting we did in Phan Thiet. I think I lost my super 8 movies in a fire but am looking for some information on it. I thought some gunnies might have some pictures. I cannot remember who rode with me but the stuff would eat the paint off the tailbooms in one day. Stay safe Shakey

I was one of the first replacements to arrive in Phan Thiet in July 68. I worked in the sheetmetal shop around the clock for the next year. I still keep in contact with Gary Johnson, Donald Taylor, Bradley L. Zirkle, and sometimes with Sgt. Knake. Will be visiting with the family of SP5 Francis Thompson, who was KIA on June 6,1969. He was from Vermont and I will be in that area in Sept.
