I was contacted by another Vernon {B.} Elder been trying to get back with him so far no luck. I served as supply Sgt. and closed the unit. I am retired from the school system and am enjoying my grand and great grand kids. Tried the email but no luck.
Admin: I let him know.

Dear all, Apologies for the unsolicited email. I am on a ‘Search & Rescue’ mission on behalf of my Dad hoping you can assist. My Dad, named Thinh Ngoc Do, a South Vietnam Airforce veteran, was hoping that he can find his good friend that he met and worked with during the year of 1972 at Nha Trang AFB. At time, he was in the 229th Fight Squadron from Pleiku AFB then to 215th FS at Nha Trang AFB and finally at the 243th FS as Chief of Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer Lab. During the time that my Dad was at Nha Trang AFB, he met Glynn Draughter, a New Orleans Black American born and bred. Glynn at time, was a specialist/trainer for the Huey Maintenance Program in Nha Trang. They shared a good time in Nha Trang but short-lived as my Dad had to move to Phu Cat AFB for the 243th Flight Squadron that had just been formed there. From what I can gather, Glynn and Dad had a really awesome time together. He still refused to tell me the story in detail but he re-assured me that they did party like there was no tomorrow. I’m sure as hell they did. The reason why I got to the 57th Assault Helicopter Company’s page is that Glynn did some paperwork for my Dad to prove that he can somewhat, be seen as a member of the 57th (or working for) just so that he can use Air America plane to travel. As such, I am guessing Glynn was part of the 57th so I hope you can assist me in pinpointing his whereabouts. Thank you for your great service in fighting for freedom for my country. Minh

To all that did not attend, you missed a great reunion! Saw people thought I'd never see again. One person I've needed to se for the last 45ish years. Captain Walker, owed him a major I'm sorry sir. Carried it all these years. Finally got to say it, he knew why and said you didn't you were a child!!! He is the greatest. Thank you so much sir. You will always be in my heart. Now about Cahill leaving my AH47 in a LZ durning a resque that I'll never let go, love you Pat, stay well and intouch. Love to all of you HEROS. As always Mike Ruggio

I noticed that the reunion this time is about one fifth to one tenth as many. Last year there had to be at least a hundred and fifty or more and even more counting wives and significant others seeing as how only 31 are on the list of those that are attending. I am saddened by this; but I do understand that circumstances vary and makes it difficult. I am considering coming even though I waited too long to get the group rate. If I do come I will be driving out and should arrive the 16th or 17th. I do hope I will be able to come and bring my youngest son with me this time.
