Latest DUSTOFF News

If it's been a couple of weeks since your last visit to our site, you may want to visit our Old New Page (or any of the past years located in the left buttons) and get caught up on what you may have missed.

 

Dust Off Crews of Vietnam War
Congressional Gold Medal Act

As you may have read on this site earlier, we have a bill in both Houses of Congress – S:2268 and H.R. 5299 to award the Congressional Gold Medal as recognition for the lifesaving efforts of DUSTOFF crews from Vietnam. This effort has the support of every major veteran’s organization in America. 

 

We need your support to urge your government representatives to support this legislation. Encourage them to join the veterans of America and cosponsor a Congressional Gold Medal for these singularly most remarkable, selfless and courageous unrecognized Veterans.

 

Below is a letter format for you to use in Word and Adobe Reader (PDF) format. Find your Representative or Senator, add their name to the beginning of the letter, sign it (type your name), and e-mail it to each.

The Fighting Season

The Fighting SeasonThe 2013 DUSTOFF Association MEDEVAC Rescue of the Year award mission was turned into a documentary. A few of the crew members filmed the mission with helmet cams. Earlier this year CPT Douglas Hill submitted them to Ricky Schroder Productions for consideration as his new documentary "The Fighting Season." They liked what they saw and 12 July the mission will be their second episode in the series. It will be available on DIRECTV Audience Channel Ch. 239 and AT&T U-verse Ch. 1114 starting at 8pm. The episodes may also be available on iTunes and Google Play.

Black Hawk Crash Reunion

Christopher Tinter is putting together a reunion of his pilot, co-pilot, medic and himself. It has been 31 years since the crash on 26 Feb 85 at Ft. Campbell KY. The crew haven't seen each other since being hospitalized following the crash. CPT Holly Ingram Monks, CW4 Clifford McGee, SGT Mark McCall, and SP4 Christopher Tinter, miraculously survived this terrible crash.

 

Black Hawk DUSTOFF Crash

 

The crew was part of the D Company 326th Medical Battalion. The Sikorsky UH60A Black Hawk helicopter had developed engine trouble during a routine training mission and crashed in TN. Within the last 6 months, Tinter was able to finally locate all the crewmembers and has made phone contact with them. They are excited about the reunion and have agreed on the location. The reunion will take place in San Diego CA on 17 Sep 16. Anyone else wanting to join them can reached Christopher Tinter at 850-728-2300.
