Comment: My Daddy Tom Heelas served with the 57th A.H.C. Gladiators till I believe 1969. He never shared many stories, however, always talked about his brothers. He instilled in us kids the meaning of our military and thier families. I'm honored to have my dad as my hero along with all of you. Thank you for all you have done for us and our country. May God Bless you always!

Comment: When the 57th arrived in Vietnam on Oct 67, I was one of a handful of guys, already in country, transferred to this new company. I was wounded during the sapper attack on the compound on the night of January 10, 1968. The wound was serious enough to warrant medical transfer back to the states.

Location: Kon Tum, Viet Nam
Comment: Currently in Kon Tum, Viet Nam. It big and beautiful. Nothing left of the airfield or compound. Itd good to put closure to an experience like this, but, i'v been to Theran, Iran, served 4 years with Boeing in Saudi Arabia, been all around the world with Boeing and DynCorp Intl so Viet Nam is but a stepping stone to my glorious career and achievements. 245 combat flying hours ovet the Ho Chi Min trail, Dak To, Ben hete and the other fights were training of what was to come. People do make the return trip and relieve yourselfs of any distress. Sp4 john kammerer Guns 57th ahc
