Here is the current listing for "O". This break out of letter groups is a result of the growth of the database in an effort to make access as quick and precise as possible. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. Please feel free to plug in previous assignments in the comments box or email me separately with them for future format expansions. I will post questions or comments as space allows.

(Oct 91 - Apr 93) Ft Eustis VA
In Alaska, I was CE and later FE on 68-15833 and was a member of the High Altitude Rescue Team. I was sent TDY to turn in 68-15833 in Sep 90 to Philly and returned with a new D model. In Nov 90, I turned in 74-22280 and returned with another new D model. Jan 91, I was sent TDY to Ft Rucker to help train new pilots. After non-stop flying, in both day and night training, I was later sent back to Ft Wainwright, AK. I was then sent to Ft Eustis where I was assigned to the flight line and performed duties as a FEI as well as QC. My friends often referred to me as "Mick". I have never loved a job as much as I did working with "Hooks" and the crews I worked with.

Hi there. I am almost finished with my training here in Ft Sam Houston to become a Combat Medic. I am in the California Army National Guard and want to know more information about my unit 3/140th Avn and the Army NG in general. I am the only one in my family in the military so I need to find outside sources to educate myself. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a nice day. PV2 Danae Olsen

I worked from the Avionics shop. I was on flt status and earned my wings at Ft Carson CO. SGT ML Gains was the Shops NCOIC, and SSG Gallegoes was the PSG. SP4 Kent Perry was the Eng Mech. The unit flew 4 CH47C's from Ft Carson to Heidleberg Ger for "Operation Northern Leap". 1 acft was destroyed at Ft Carson during training for O.N.L. All crew members survived unhurt. My OIC was CW4 Roth, a real gentlemen, and one of the finest pilots I ever had the pleasure of working for. (80 - 81) 45th Trans Co Camp Humphreys ROK
Supported 271st BlackCats. I was made an honorary member, but never received my certificate of appreciation before I left ROK. I wish I had it. It was a pleasure to work in a Chinook company and a thrill to have been a crewmember. I still miss the rush.
To all on active duty: Keep your heads down and your chins up; come home safe, and bring your buddies with you. GOD Bless you all, and GOD bless America.

I got out of the the Army in 00. I got my A&P license and went to work with Dyncorp. I was with 224th MI working on Beech King Airs at HAAF 02. After deploying to Kuwait I decided that I would try and go home to Huntsville, where I continued to work with Dyncorp, but now was an FE on C-23 aircraft. I then had a better job opportunity in 03 with Lear Siegler crewing the new F-model Chinook. I loved it and I think everyone will enjoy the new glass cockpits. I then decided to go and crew a desk as a analyst with Intuitive working with the Cargo PM office at Redstone. God Bless.
