Scary thing it must be, 'going down' in a hee-lo.

Especially tragic, is thier mission of peace, not war.

A Vietnam vet friend of mine survived a bad crash, with only his leg
injured, the other two died. But his leg had lots of surgeries, and
"Frankenstienien" scars!

Another vet friend said he was scared beyond description, when the
Huey he was flying took rounds from the cong, all while he had to stay
steady at the controls during an ee-vac of wounded troops!

Brutal!
