Served w/ 517MI, 1/5, Quang Tri, 9/69-11/70. Also attached to Phuong Hoa (Phoenix) in village of Gio Linh, and flew as an AO in bird-dogs last 5 mos. Beautiful countryside; hated to call in '52's, jet strikes, arty, naval gunfire, the likes. Worse was talking to LRP's who whispered 'cuz they were next to large #s of NVA, or watching from above as tanks hit mines while on patrol. Felt kinda helpless up there, even with all that firepower at my command.
While in Gio Linh, I worked with a man named "Captain" John Crabtree, Phoenix liaison. Anybody know where he is?
