We are upgrading Marine helicopters; UH-1y Huey and AH-1Z Cobras. They are due mass production in 2006. If ya know me, drop me a line. Take it easy. P.S I really miss working on Chinooks.

Remember Guns-a-Go-Go & Danny Dugan, not Duggan? Or was it the other way around? It's been awhile. Guns came back home to Texas. I was living in Porterville CA when he paid me a visit in the summer of 72. He said drug dealers were after him and, "could I hang out with you awhile?" Sure I said and he got himself a job driving the only cab in town. He slept in the dispatch office on a cot with a pistol under his pillow. Four or five months later they found him shot through the head. I guess he got tired of waiting. Anybody remember Sheba and her daughter, or stepenwolf? Remember when the MP's threatened to shoot all the loose dogs on the compound? A few of us decided to build a pen from some chain link somebody scrounged up. They kept us company on guard duty and patrolled the perimiter between bunkers under the glow of that incredible asian moon. Remember Lam Son 719 and Laos. Over one hundred choppers were lost and six hundred plus were damaged in a little over six weeks. It's estimated that over 500,000 arty rounds were lobbed into that backwater between early Feb and late Mar 71. I miss the poker games. Those old crows could play a mean game of hold'em. After three marriages and 25 jobs in 30 years I've found a woman who will have me. We have twin boys 21 months old and three grown children between us. Right now life is pretty good. I get to play a lot of golf, my daughter is graduating Harvard this year and I just got my first hunting/fishing license from the state of Oregon and it didn't cost me a dime. How about you?

I've got a lot of crazy memories from the 180th. Palovic driving a deuce and a half with me and trading spaces (driver and passenger) on the move approaching a curve. Anything from fasching. The pathfinders chasing a wild pig through tent city at Graf. Vellburg castle on July 4th. The list goes on, as you all well know. One of the strangest was from the day I arrived. I hadn't even been to my room yet, just sitting with my bags on the steps in the CQ area. A guy (the first Don Anderson) came up to me and said, "You're Don Anderson, right?" I said yeah. He said something like, "So am I. Welcome to Big Windy." 3000 miles from home- what are the odds? But you all know, that's how the 180th was.

I haven't looked back once, as a matter of fact, I wish I would've started right out of high school. Oh well! I got on flight status in Apr of 99. Went to the Panama in 96, SLIC in 00, Iraq in 2003, Jamaica in 06, FEIC in 08 and have been fightin forest fires since I got on flight status. I work at EAATS and enjoy every minute. Appy

I'm the widow with questions
Hi! I am the wife of Elvin W Archer (deceased as of April 1991). I mailed a submission request for his possible entrance into the Army Aviation Hall of Fame in 2004. He was being recalled from retirement to serve in Desert Storm at the time of his Heart attack. Where can I locate information regarding the submission. Also I have several old pictures of his aviation career, including buddies in Korea 1950-1951. I have been an Army dependent(that's Army aviation since 1949) and wonder from time to time--whatever happened to our old friends. Thanks for having a site for all of us to look at, our young relatives find it hard to believe he was a young man once, and participated in four wars. (almost with Deserrt Storm). Eleanor J. Archer

Crewed 68-16015 and had the time of my life with my butt kicked by Terry. Tried to not get my butt kicked by Clarence. Stayed out of the way of 1SG Murphy. Learned about Maintenance from Karl. Learned about soldiering from my Uncles and CSM (Wescom) Freitas & CSM (124th Trans) Malate. Learned about Ger from Mike Perry. Listened to the lesson of life that Mr Arkwright and Volero talked about on the Big Island. Tried to understand the wisdom of Mr Daly, and the Vietnam vet pilots. And will never forget Ken Leroy the day he picked us up in a deuce and a half at Group. You soldiers made me who I am today. Thanks Hillclimbers!

Although I have only spent about 5 years total as a Hooker, it is by far the best aircraft I have had the pleasure of working on and flying in, and the Chinook community is head and shoulders above the rest. Once a HOOKER always a HOOKER! I would love to hear from some of my old friends.

Also had the pleasure of working with Chuck Straw, SFC (Ret) who served in a number of Chinook units during his 20 years in the Army, and with CC Brown, who served in Vietnam with the "Guns-a-Go-Go". Unfortunately, CC Brown isn't with us anymore, but I'm pretty sure Chuck Straw is, considering how hard it would be to kill that guy... ;)

My first and only permanent duty assignment was with the 243rd. I was a truck mechanic attached to the Chinook company. Although I was a truck mechanic I always associate my time in the Army with the Chinooks. I only flew in a Chinook one time - and got quite ill. These days it's impossible for me to see a Chinook and not think back to my days in the service. After I left the Army I used my college fund to get a degree from the University of Cincinnati. Since then I've spent my working career in the information systems field. With just a 2 year stint I was a short-timer pretty much the day I walked in the door. But please be assured that although my time in the Army was short it forever changed me as a man (for the better) and I will always consider myself a soldier. I have a great deal of pride for my time in the service and a lot of memories of my time with the 243rd.

I have more flight time in C-130's now than I had in Chinooks. The Herk is a great airplane but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the CH-47D... you never forget your roots. Can't wait to check out an F model someday. I miss all the guys I flew with, flight platoon humor and doing sling loads.
