on April 15 of 72 I helped transfer a wounded crewmember from a slick
that had come into MACV Kontum. sadly all efforts were in vain.
after some detective work I found the guy's name. later I met (on line)
his two pilots...a meeting that later went south. I now understand the
unwillingness to share the memory of their lost comrade. by a strange
stroke of luck I found a video that contained audio of the mission to
rescue survivors of FSB Charlie. go to minute 24 of the video and
listen as it unfolds, beginning with the other gunner's M60 jamming...a
bad guy jumped up in front of that gunner and fired his AK...a round
that went thru the aircraft striking Dallas Nihsen in the back, killing him.
what a way to temper one's Sunday fuck me
