Just to let everyone know I have submitted my latest book project to Hellgate Press who will be publishing “VOL 2, U.S. Army Helicopter Names In Vietnam”. Should be ready for the VHCMA reunion in June. Features 600 new helicopter names. However, new NAMES can still be added right up until the final edit. Quality in-country nose art photos are welcomed as always. Happy New Year everyone.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all.
For those of you who have read my story on the Australian Army machine gunners who flew with the EMUS will know that I am trying to get these soldiers the Air Medal.
Help would be appreciated in finding out if the daily flight/crew records are still available.
Also I have been told that to secure the medal for these men Congressional sponsorship is required.
Dose anyone know a Congressman who would likely help.
Thanks for any help that may be forthcoming.

I was with the 7th/1st Air Cav (Blackhawks) in Vign Long in 68 when a strange voice, who identified themselves as EMU’s, ask if we could give them some gun support while they inserted into the Delta. We had two Cobras spray the area with mini guns and rockets just before they landed. The voice came back and said, “Can you bloody leave us something to shoot at mate?” I thought they were New Zealanders until I discovered what EMU meant. I later got to take out you wounded at a place we called “Red Earth” when you Dustoff Helicopter was down for a week. I was with the 247th Med. Det. at Vung Tau then. Loved working with the Aussies. They were great troops.

Thank you to the original creators of the site and to the modernists with the skills to improve and keep it in existence. As an antediluvian troglodyte – I was 12 before I saw an electric light – I stand in awe of people who can build, use and understand all of this arcane stuff. A huge Thank You once again. Persevere

Gunship doorgunner from 1967 – 1968 Vung Tau and Blackhorse. The years disappear but the friendships remain. Flew with great blokes – Ables, Coleman, Lozar, Larson, Hohweiller, Gould, McGuiness, Miracle, Fennel, Gizatulin, Byers and Weeks. Apart from being great crewchiefs, these blokes were always willing to share a good yarn and a good drink. Some of us stay in touch via emails…not too regularly, but regularly enough.

I hope all are still going strong and healthy. Good luck to all.
