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.

Unit: 57th AHC
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

Unit: 57th AHC
Comment: Recently found out my deceased father SP4 Darris Miller was a part of this company. I found him on the yearbook titled: 1970-71 52nd CAB - 57th AHC. I am wondering if anyone had any memories to share or if there is a resource to find out what kind of missions he was involved in, thanks. Contact

Comment: February 2019 issue of American Rifleman has an article on p. 44 by Major John Plaster regarding the CAR-15. It uses a photo of a SOG extraction by a 57th slick on the opening page. The same photo is on page 180 of Plaster's "SOG A Photo History of the Secret Wars"

Admin: Thanks for sharing!

Comment: I talked to Darrell Anthony for about 2 hours this morning and it really felt good to talk to someone that was there when the 57th was first organized. It a lot different than talking to someone that had no clue what your talking about. Still would like to hear from other gladiators.
