Comment: There were 7 of the 57th AHC members at the SOA in Las Vegas. Had a great time. A very inexpensive venue. Had the privilege of talking to one or two of the Vietnamese Kingbee pilots and to thank him for rescuing me over there. He said, no..thank you..you rescued me too! There were 6 of us who brought up the subject of piggy backing the 57th AHC with the SOA or SOG reunions permanently.. kick it around and talk about it. It’s less expensive concerning the issue of Hotels and Airfare. It’s an idea. Also want to say I was wrong about the issue of the location where #279 went down on April 7,1969 .Leghorn was further west..and where we went down was further east as I recall. North East of Ben Het. Even that I can not be sure that’s it’s exact.

Comment: Has anybody been back to our old Company Area at Ft. Bragg recently?? The last time that I was there was March of 2001..The Mess Hall was there and so was the Supply Room / Barracks building and a beautiful barbecue pit was in between the 2 buildings where the Mess Sgt. wanted it.. All else was gone.. Can anybody give me an update? Bob Fogg 66 to 67..

Comment: I searched the 57th Helicopter data base and found it curious. That we 57th AHC had lost two helicopters in April of 1969. Neither dates were mentioned or either crew. April 1: and April 7 ,1969 Ernie People’s AC ?and Alvin Gay were two of the crew members on one helicopter And Paul Brannon(AC) Jim Kawa(pp) Jim Carriere ( CE) and Tony Hernandez (gunner) Is there a reason these two helicopters were scrubbed?

Admin: Helicopter data was taken from VHPA Helicopter History CD as written.

Location: Albany, Oregon
Comment: This is message to the 57th AHC unit to let them know that my older brother Larry Blakley passed away on January 27, 2017 from pancreatic cancer. He was stationed at Kontum as a crew chief from 1967-1969 I believe. He was a proud vet all his life and told me many stories. I have a letter he sent home right after the Jaunary 10th attack telling about it I'd like to share if somebody can give me an email I can send a photo copy of it to them. He was only 19 and it's very special. Best wishes, Gaylon Amen.
