i agree with joe and tina. this has to be one of the greatest gifts that a person could give someone. i wish that more of us could remember things about what went on there and could talk more about the great people that we had met there.this was a big time in our lives and most of us were scared to death and many couldnt cope with it. when i was in vien long there was a church across from the nco club, we had services there many times for the guys that lost their lives from the base. one guy that i remember was in the mailroom, just a great guy, but he wanted to be a gunner and finally got his wish. within one week two chopers came togather in flight and he was gone. he left a wife and two children that he always talked about. these are the things that i remember, the times, the faces, the memories, but the names seem to have disapeared. i really long to remember the names so that i dont forget my friends.
