Year(s) and position with the Warlords? 68- 70 Skeeter Crewchief 69-70; Ships 799, 800, 172, 176, 254, 258
Comments: What a great site. How do we get info to you about many people who are not in the gallery. There are lots of skeeter people missing such as Dennis Chapin, Alex Kashirsky (Russian), Charles Odell (Deputy Dog), Becktol, Alexander, Sp4 Wise, and many other crewmembers. Pilots also like Corbin, Colvin, OHara. Would be nice if we could get a complete rooster of all the crazy errr I mean people who were in AERO SCOUTS. We fly low but we are always ...... Peace Out

Comments: Thought some of you might like to know that Berg was my 1st CE on 076 and I was the DG on 6/69 when we crashed her on LZ Ranger south of Chu Lai. I remember Berg crashed in a loach and I was sure he survived? Your site says he was KIA? When? I got Pelican 272 after losing 076 and lived to tell about it. I have since been an A&P, IA mechanic here in N calif. Would like to hear from anyone.

Year(s) and position with the Warlords? Sp4 Bruce W. Wright - Animal 1970 (my brother)
Comments: On 1 September 1970 at grid coordinates BS 553638, an Aero Scout infantry team of six men, was inserted to check the body of a dead NVA soldier. SSG Patrick Hardy was the infantry team lead. SGT Thomas J. Perkins, Sp4 Harold Lee 'Mac' MacDonald, Sp4 Bruce W. Wright, Sp4 Frederick D. Newman and Kit Carson Scout Nguyen Van Tien made up the team. The team came under very intense enemy fire after leaving the aircraft. Sp4 Wright and Sp4 MacDonald were reported hit immediately and were out in the clearing, forward of the remainder of the team. Several attempts were made to reach the two men but intense enemy always drove the soldiers back to cover. Three NVA soldiers reached Sp4 Wright and dragged him into a woodline. The remainder of the team was successfully extracted. All except Sp4 Wright were accounted for when the team returned to Chu Lai.

Comments: I think you have a great website. I had sent you some materials previously. I do not see any information from the 1970 16th Combat Avn Group album. And there is a nice color layout and story that was in a PDF file of the Spring 1971 Americal Magazine that would be great for this website. There is a posting of a story from the transcribed 1/52 Inf S2/S3 journals that references LZ Dowman (I may need to check this out. I recall an LZ Bowman, but not LZ Dowman).

Year(s) and position with the Warlords? Mar '70- Nov '70
Comments: Came to Warlords in Mar'70- Nov'70 then transfered to F/8 Blue Ghost in Chu Lai, DEROS in Mar'71. Worked maintenance for Warlords and with them for the move when we took over flight line that USMC had their F/4 Fantoms on the Chu Lai air strip. I liked it better by the ocean. Made SP/5 before transfer to Blue Ghost, because I was a badboy. I got into an argument with my NCOIC,Sgt. Swarts. I loved the $.10 beer and the $.25 shots at the clubs!!!! Also sneeking in the "after-hour" hooch maids. Liked the inspection flights to DaNang for booze and the steam-n-cream houses. AAH, the benifits of war.

Year(s) and position with the Warlords? My uncle, Michael Hardesty, served with the 123rd Avn Bn/BCo
Comments: Some of you on the site know me from recent email exchanges. First of all, I want to say thank you so much for making this web site. Through all my research, I couldn't believe that there wasn't a site for this unit. Last week, truly, I almost registered several domain names to start a web site for this unit...and then I thought better of it. Best to come from those of you who were there. In a nutshell, my uncle, Michael Hardesty, was killed by sniper fire on September 6, 1968, during a search and clear operation 7 miles west of Quang Ngai City. He earned the Silver and Bronze Stars with combat V. My family no longer has (most likely simply can not find) the awards citation...we have the medals but not the citation. Along with hoping to contact men who might have known my uncle while in Viet Nam, I am hoping to find out any information surrounding the circumstances under which he was awarded the Silver Star. Please feel free to email me directly. Any and all information is deeply appreciated. P.S. We have photos - good ones. It will take me awhile but I will send copies your way. P.P.S. Would like to see larger photos of the platoons. Again, many thanks for creating this site. You men deserve it!

Comments: I am the Americal Division Veteran's Association Historian. I served with the 123rd Avn Bn from Feb 68-Apr 70. Thirteen months as a crewchief with the Pelicans. My AIT group was split up between Warlords, Road Runners, and Pelicans. Many friends from the Warlords and several times the Warlords covered me when we needed it. I have a lot of material on the Warlords in the ADVA data base. Including scannings of the 1967 (Scorpions), 1969 (Warlords), 1970 (Warlords) unit albums on CD-ROM. I was honored as an honorary Warlord at the 1997 Dallas re-union for my efforts to contact former members of the 123rd Avn Bn. I have some contacts with former Warlords.
