Lots of years gone by since Christmas 1969. For many Hawks it was just another day whether in the mess tent putting a special meal together, in the maintenance shack or on the flight line getting the cobras ready, the armament guys always busy, the guys doing the security on the berm, test flights. ops guys coordinating the next missions,some spending the day in Hue at the orphanage...lot going on other than flying missions. A total collective effort and thats what made D/101 so special. Want to wish all Hawks still with us a great holiday , and for those families of "missing" Hawks, a special thanks for their service.I really miss all of you and what a great privilege it was to be HAWK6

I was refueling barrels of diesel when a cobra came out of the west yawing and out of control. Pilot was doing his best to land at our Firebase Blaze and no in the woods. It was the end of June 69. I moved about 40 feet away as the cobra hit the above mounted fuel bladder and did a 180 landing in the small area at the POL. The rotor stopped turning but the engine was running at top RPM. I went back to the bird with one other 83rd guy and pulled out the pilot after a tiff with the door and seatbelt. He was incoherent but alive. There was nobody in the front seat. A captain took the pilot to a medical tent and we proceeded to pump diesel into the barrels to bring back to the tracks for refueling. Maybe two weeks before that incident our battery was march ordered off Firebase Cannon because of a heavy threat [ one hour away headed towards us] at 0200 hours. Two cobra's flew over our convoy back and forth as we drove in blackout drive to Blaze along Rt 547, about 6 clicks away. Were any of these Cobra's in the HAWK unit at Phu Bai?

I was a member of the D Co. "Black Angels" on Sept. 28, 1968. Our gunship UH-1C the Black Angel (frog) was shot down deep inside Laos while trying rescue a MACV-SOG, FOB-1 team that was trapped and on the run for 7 days. Our entire crew were pulled out on strings, with the SF Medic who came out of the slick. I and the surviving members of the crew have never gotten to thank the crew of the slick. I was the door gunner who kept pointing up to the crew chief that there was 37 and 57mm airburst going off about the aircraft. If anyone knows who the pilots and crew were could they please e-mail me at sdearmanvva@hotmail.com. The crew that picked up the team was shot down also but was picked up by another slick.
Thanks

Hawk 15, 1972

no contact with any Hawks in quite some time. Will meet with Ray Pitts soon when he heads north. Years ago did run into a number of former "slick pilots" who could not say enough about the gunship support provided by the HAWKS. From what I read the old PHU BAI as we remember is long gone as is Camp Eagle. Quang Tri totally destroyed during the 72 Easter Offensive as was most of Dong Ha. Lots of PHU Bai memories.Must have seen every Clint Eastwood western about 20 times. Never was able to run down Ron Perry(1st HAWK 6) Hope all of you have an enjoyable summer. While the names fade somewhat,the faces are just like they were in 1969 Any HWKS passing through Southwest Virginia, ( near Radford )give a call and I will meet you where ever you are
