Mike Grude informed me that Gary Schoelerman was in Loozyanna. Got his # off the net and called him. Great AC to have flown with. Finally got to tell him.

That's tough to hear. I lost contact with JP and wanted to reconnect. He was my gunner the day I got hit. May God bless and keep him.

In looking at the 170th roster, I saw that Gary Schoelerman was listed and annotated as "Living". As Gary was my AC, glad to hear it. If you are in contact, please pass along my address to Gary with warmest regards.

Checking for Tom Carrell, I was with 119th while he was with 170th in '67. We IP'd in the same flight at Rucker then lost track. Like to say hi. Great site photos bring back some memories.

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Michael O'Donnell's poems? I read the two in Frank Greco's "Running Recon" and was very moved by them.

Looking forward to the reunion in St. Louis. Enjoyed Reno last year and catching up on old times. I located my gunship 64-14150 in a hanger in Little Rock, Ark and hope to visit and photo it prior to the reunion. A big thanks to Gary Roush for helping me locate a bit of history for me.

I was a crew chief, 70-71 with the Buccaneers. Tail number of my helo was 036, BUC4, A/C was Mr. Williams. I remember being one of the last Buccaneer gunships to fly out of Kontum, upon the 170th AHC being de-activated. I even found a picture of myself in Mr. Williams's photos.

After arriving in-country I was assigned to the 52ABC and snagged as the Battalion COs driver, (Merritt) which lasted for about three weeks. Then transferred to the 170th from September of 70 to Jan of 71. Worked in Maint Platoon until Snyders Huey was hit on the flight line. Replaced his DG s slot in Flt Platoon, I think the 2nd. Anyway, brought personal belongings to the DG at the 71st Evac Hospital in Pleiku a few days later. Does anyone know his name or heard about him in the years since, I think his last name was King?? The website just keeps getting better.

Helicopter "nicknames" of the VN War is the subject
of a book I'm presently researching. During this
process I've documented ten personalized names that
were displayed on various 170th AHC in-country
aircraft: ANN, BOUNTY HUNTER II, CHUCK YOU FARLIE, DRY
DOCK, GAIL SUE, GLORIA, NANCY, THE MERCENARY, THE
PHARAOH, WIDOW MAKER.
I'm wondering if this number accurately reflects the
total output produced by crews of the 170th AHC who
might have painted something special on the nose, door
or fuselage of their Vietnam based copters.
There has never been a comprehensive cataloging of
personalized "names" before. This attempt will be the
first, and hopefully, the most complete tabulation of
Army copter "nose-art nicknames" ever. Therefore, it
is important that the published database (late 2008)
include all known 170th AHC copter names as possible.
I ask that you notify your members about this
project and that you forward their input to me.
Scanned photos are welcomed, but not necessary.
Sincerely, John Brennan, active member in the VHCMA
& 114 Avn Co Assn; former SP5, 114 AHC, Vinh Long AAF,

I don't know why I waited for over 35 years to do this search and find your website. I guess I've come to a time in my life when I want to remember. I took my basic and infantry training at Ft. Polk, LA. and served with the 52nd Scty Det. for 11 Months at Kontum in support of the Bikinis and Buccaneers in 1969-1970. I finished out my tour in Pleiku after we abandoned the base at Kontum to the ARVN's. I remember guard duty and sleeping every night in the bunkers around that dirt berm perimeter, daytime recon patrols (some of you went with us), drinking Black Label beer out of rusty cans, touch football games against the aviation guys, mortar and rocket (Rocket City Baby!) attacks day or night. And especially the brotherhood.

Hey, This site brought back memories. Strangely enough, all good ones. I came down from the 57th in Sep of 69 on a DEROS Shuffle and somehow ended up being Bikini 18. I am still tooling around in helicopters for a living. Does anyone know of a crew chief named Bill Fuller? He was with me on 66-16852 which I also flew in '74 on a test flight for the VNAF. Good to see "Dry Dock 6" too. Keep up the good work on the site. How do you get permission to sign on? Thanks for helping me remember.

Im Kenneth H. Ervin and I served with B/3rd/8th, 4th Infantry Division from December 1965 November 1967. I am one of the original Boat People. I did a google search for you on the World Wide Web. All that I could remember of you was the Bikini clad ladies that you had on the front of your choppers so I searched on Bikini Helicopters and therefore it returned me your site. I was there at the battles of Plei Doch and Plei Ya Bo (Three Trees). I want to thank you for all that you did for us. I still remember you risking your lives for us to resupply us during those awful Monsoons when visibility has near 0. I still remember how you ferried in fresh troops from our Forward Fire Base in our time on need. I have one question for you. The following 2 people were killed about 1 month after I came home. I assume that they perished in a Chopper Crash. Our Batallion Commander Glen Dean Belnap and his Sargent Major Hebert Roberts Jr. both lost their on 12/20/1967. I would appreciate any details that you can provide me with their death. They are the only deaths listed on this particular date from my old unit.

I have had many thoughts of my tour at Camp Hollaway (Jan 1967 - Jan 1968. I was with the Headquarters Platoon and worked as a Radio Operator, Flight Operations Maintenance Clerk and a PLL Clerk for the Company Motor Pool. I had no idea this site was here and I feel fortunate to have located it. I have been looking for the Bikini Patch and the Headquarters Platoon Patch and now have the information to obtain those. I know this is a great site and will share my pictures in the near future.

I am still alive, don't know why I googled this today? The 170th is and has and forever will be part of my life. It was great to see the pictures, especially of Lt Willis and his AWESUM crew. He was a great pilot.
