Reported in to 9th SOS 29 Dec 69 at Bien Hoa RVN on my second tour of duty. Worked as night shift chief on flight line and flew as kicker on day missions. After returning back to the world.Got into AF special Ops. Retired after 30 years in Army and Airforce. All the things that I have done the mission that I remember the most was the time I spent with the 9th SOS, and my time with combat air rescue. Huff and Puff rule.
