This info was gathered from the D101Hawks history :
From the combat proven ranks of the the original B/101 Company came the UH-1C gunship platoon called The Black Angels. From the combat proven ranks of the 17th AHC came the UH-1C gunship platoon call The Lancers. From the combat proven ranks of The 188th AHC came the UH-1C gunship platoon called The Spiders. From other combat units came individuals and they along with the gunship platoons transferred into the newly formed UH-1C gunship company called D Company 101ST AVN BN, Company D was to be known as the Hawks. The proven and battle tested combat experience of these men made D Company a success in being a UH-1C helicopter gunship company and that same combat experience and professionalism of the pilots, the crewchiefs, door gunners, the ground maintenance crews and all the support personnel again carried the day when D Company transitioned to a AH-1G Cobra helicopter gunship company. These brave and courageous men continued to take the fight to the enemy and flew into the pages of Aviation history. The Hawks have had many changes over the years, but the bravery and courage is still there in the Hawks and they continue the tradition of taking the fight to the enemy.

Nice to see you have a little verbiage about the original unit the D Company the Black Angels, from 1968. Some great pilots went to the Hawks from the Black Angels.
Thanks Scott De Arman, Door gunner on the Black Angel, #532 resting near Ho Chi Minh trail since Sept.68

I served with D101 in 1968-69. Wondering if William Andrews has ever visited the site.
Greetings to all who served - land of the free because of the brave.

Read in the VHPA magazine that Bob Heisterman, former Delta Co Ops Officer passed away. Bob was a super officer and made my job easier across the board. His wife, Karen, an Army nurse was also stationed at Phubai same time Bob was with us.
