I served in the Army at Ft. Greely, Alaska in 1961 and 62. I was in the Air Section there. We flew support missions for the base which included med evac flights to the army hospital at Ft. Wainright. In late 61 we received a brand new HU-1A bird which replaced our Bell H-13. The aircraft number was 60-3538.

I flew many hours in that chopper as crew chief. My pilot was then Captain Robert Durie. Our "Huey" was a wonderful aircraft and we flew her a lot. Never had a problem. The main unit on the base was the Army Arctic Test Board and they got a "B" model some months after we got our "A" model. Our Huey was still there when I left in September of 62
