Looking for Aircraft Commander added by Jose A. Jaimes
I'm looking for the Aircraft Commander (Captain at the time) for the Bikini Blue #246, that was shot down in May of 68, during an insertion of a RVN team just South of Pleiku near Han Khe. I was the Crew Chief 'Jaime' to many of my fellow Bikini's, my door gunner was SP4 Carrolla, the Co-Pilot was a brand new W1, who just happen to join us and this was his very first flight in Country. We were on our 2nd trip back to the LZ when we were shot down, the AC - Captain ___________, had both his legs shot up with one round goin in on one of his buttocks. I remember him yelling at me to get his camera! After being med evac to the rear I/we lost track of him. I would like to know his name and more importatly for me his condition, I have wonder this for over 40 years.

Vigilante II aircraft tail number added by Bill Willing
The nose cone of BUC4 Vigilante II hangs in my shop above the beer frig in Anaconda, MT and is in prestine condition. The nose cone 'The Vigilane' is in the Montana National Guard Museum at Ft Harrison, MT. It was damaged and not repairable while on aircraft 66-036.

SOG reunion cookout added by Ron Sanders - 170th Crewchief 1969
On 7/25/09 I had the honor to attend a reunion hosted by Joe Parnar for SOG members living in Massachusetts. While there I received a copy of Joe's book: 'SOG MEDIC, Stories from Vietnam and Over the Fence'. Joe signed the book with the following inscription that I believe belongs to every member of the 170th.
'Thanks for your service and God Bless the 170th AHC. Many a SOG Recon man owe their lives to you guys. Thanks,
De Oppresso Liber'.

Joe 'Roy' Vinzant added by William Vinzant
MY father served in the 170th, 52nd Avn Bn, 1st Bde. I belive he was with the first group to leave Fort Benning as he joined in Aug. of 65. I belive he was a Buccaneer. Dad died of cancer last summer, Aug.6,2007. Dad was diagnosed with cancer of the spine, liver and bone cancer all over. He had lost an eye to melanoma cancer a few years ago. If anyone could share some stories or pics of my dad, it would help our family greatly with our grieving. He was and always will be the greatest man I have ever known. God Bless each and every one of you American Heroes.

Great Site - Just Found It added by James J. Rudy
I flew slicks in the red platoon from June/66 to June 67 as a 1/LT/CPT. Would like to attend any future reunions after this year. Unfortunately, I am already committed (bought my plane ticket) for a fishing trip in Canada with Army friends during this year's reunion in St. Louis.
Currently 'retired' near Seneca, SC and do lots of hunting and fishing and volunteer work.
