Message: Thank you for the efforts made to welcome back the MEDEVAC units from OEF and OIF.

Message: Arrowhead Films ("In The Shadow of The Blade") is looking for Texas Vietnam veterans with a positive story to tell about the Vietnam War Red Cross Girls (aka "Donut Dollies"). I hear they hopped a few DUSTOFFS to get out to the troopers. We're working on a documentary about their untold (and often mistold) story. If you have a Delta Delta story and can come to Austin to tell it, please contact me. Salutes to you all.

Time Frame: Nov 70 - Nov 71
E-mail: Waverley65@AOL.com
Message: Flew with 159th out of Long Bihn. James Seals was DO 158 prior to myself.

I believe he was just mentioned in the Spokane Wash. paper ( Spokesman Review) for donating a kidney to a stranger. At least the paper says he spent a year in Vietnam as a "Medevac" pilot - you know how newspapers are.

Anyone know whereabouts of 1LT "Doc" Bezold or CW2 Chris Warnock? Bezold was with 159th and Warnock with 45th med. Co. (I think)

Unit: HSC-25 Det 5 Air Ambulance

E-mail: jonathan.schein@hsc25.navy.mil
Message: I'm a member of the first Navy Air Ambulance Det going to Kuwait/Iraq to relieve some of the Army guys that have been doing this mission in Iraq for so many months and tours now. The more I dig into the "DUSTOFF" tradition and such people like Major Kelly the more honored I am to be a part of it. Certainly there are those that can't be happy us "squids" are intruding on their business, but I hope I can convey to you all that it is with a deep sense of that tradition and honor that I go to do this and I intend to make it my mission to see all of my colleagues feel the same.

Thank you so much for what you have given.

Message: Flew with the 283d at Bliss with Pete Langhorne, Lee Smith, Charlie Davis and Cliff McGee and in Alaska with Mike Hale, Al Nicoson and Chris Seidor . Flew with the Gorgas Det in Panama when Dirty Ernie was there. Incredible mission; crappy lifestyle. Eight straight years as a Warrant in DUSTOFF and I still got promoted! I still tell vastly exaggerated tales about the missions.

Name:Eric J. Steward
Call Sign: 
Unit:45th Med. Co. (AA)
Time Frame: 2002-2005
E-mail: lightninges71@yahoo.com
Message:My father flew with Major Brady on the day he earned his Medal of Honor. His name was Gene Edward Steward and he was an E-5 at the time. He was put in for the Medal of Honor but was down graded to a Silver Star. I believe on that day when one of the helicopters went down, Major Brady and my father were the only ones that survived. I remember my father telling me stories of Major Brady and how he was regarded as a hero in our family. I am a crew member now in a medevac unit (45th med. co (AA)) and have my own stories for my kids of missions I was on in Iraq (OIF II). I received two Air Medals, but the thing I am most proud of is the fact that I can share, with my father, stories of our combat medevac days. I would like to get in touch with Mr. Brady so I could reunite him and my father. I would hope that he would remember my father because my father sure remembers him.
