Gentlemen, the following in-country "named" 170th helicopters require a corresponding aircraft serial #. Can anyone fill this historical void? I'm presently assembling data for a future book, "U.S. ARMY HELICOPTER NAMES & NOSE ART IN VIETNAM". Thanks, John Brennan, former SP5, 114 AHC, 1970-71, Vinh Long AAF, Mekong Delta:

To whom it may concern,

I am a Service officer for the Disabled American Veteran's. I am writing to you on behalf of Mr. Clarence E. Chilton. He was with your unit mostly in 1967 and left in 1968. He is still alive and well.

I am trying to find any information I can get on an incident that happened the first night of the Tet offensive involving Mr. Chilton. He was blown off a bunker by mortar fire and this caused hearing loss and tinnitus. The Veteran's Administration cannot find evidence of the incident. Any help I can get on his behalf is greatly appreciated.

We appreciate the donations our Bn and Companies members has made to fulfill this Project. We have tried to take as many photos as we could to take you thru the building process. 17 months.
The museum installed a UH1-H just to the west of our wall. Our Camp Holloway Memorial Wall represents the
U S ARMY. Each other Branch can only have one outside memorial. The Vietnam Memorial Wall will stand just to the west of our Memorial Wall. Digging starts this NOV and it will be Dedicated May 2009.

The Liberty Bell will ring out one time for every KIA/MIA plaque that is on the Wall.
Lt Col Merritt will deliver Camp Holloways story. The Dedication ends with a Native American Blessing of the Wall and making the Ground Sacred, followed by a 21 gun salute and Taps.
Wish everyone of you could be here.

I noticed the pictures of the Cobra 15151. I was the crew chief on 68-15151 from 08/71 to 11/71 at Camp Evans, RVN. We ran her as a heavy hog and I may have some pictures of her when we were there. Last time I saw her was at the Bell Plant in Hurst, Tx in 1975 with a new nose and front wind screen. If I can find the pictures, I'll get back with you.
