Message:Flew as a Helicopter Rescue Specialist (Fire Fighter) with Flatiron for about three years. Had a great team back then and have missed it ever since. If anyone reads this that remembers a fellow named Joe Jack Hudgins, he was medically retired as a DAC last May as a result of injuries incurred during a crash. A person couldn't ask for a better friend and mentor. God bless and good luck Joe!!!

Unit:Bttn Surgeon 3/506 101 ABN Vietnam
Time Frame:1967-68
E-mail: src1935@juno.com
Message:Great site. I guess I qualify as an adjunct member. I was involved in over 60 hours of Medevac flight time, picking up wounded and working on them while in transit to Surg Hospital in Long Binh, or other sites. I have never met a more dedicated and brave bunch of men in my life. You were the difference in so many lives. Still looking for the medic/door gunner who pulled me back on a chopper Aug 1968, when I was shot out of it during a Medevac. He threw me inside and laid over me and took 3 rounds in his flak vest.
