Taipan 6, 70 – 71, Bear Cat briefly but mostly scenic Dong Tam. Retired and traveling with my bride in our RV. When home in Huntsville, AL, active in NAVHPA. Check our website www.na-vhpa.org and you’ll see 66-00623 which reportedly flew as a Taipan gunship briefly while spending most of its time in the 170th.

The Bride and I drove over 3,000 ks return trip to Nowra, New South Wales, for the 50 year reunion of the Royal Australian Navy Helicopter Flight Vietnam. And what a reunion it was. Held over 15 -18 October, acquaintances and friendships were renewed; well, actually these were just picked up from where they left off way-back-when. As part of the 135th AHC, the EMUs who mustered remembered those who did not return and we paid tribute to those 37 brave souls. It was great to see that, once again, we were an integrated unit. Some of our American brothers also attended. We marched together as a proud unit to a memorial stone where addresses were given and prayers offered in remembrance. In the evenings it was get-together and drinks and yarns flowed freely.
It was truly a great occasion.
