To Hugh OHandley: Do you have any pictures of those five Cobras in DaNang that you would allow me to post on this site.

Served with the Hawks the last month they were in RVN. Flew to DaNang with the last 5 Cobras to turn them in. Stayed with the birds for 2 weeks while they were mothballed. Upon our return to Phu Bai were were transfered to Marble Mountain and Delta went home.

The following is a article concerning search efforts in Laos.
Repatriation Ceremony in Laos
U.S. Army Maj. Charles Kissling, Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) Detachment Three commander, signs an Official Turnover of Possible Remains of U.S. Personnel document alongside a Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) official during a DPAA repatriation ceremony in the Lao PDR, Nov. 2, 2022. DPAA's mission is to achieve the fullest possible accounting for missing and unaccounted-for U.S. personnel to their families and the nation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Blake Gonzales)

Think of the countless millions of veterans that have made the USA possible.

I saw Ray Pitts was looking for information on the AMARC Experience Database for 67-15791. My Father-In-Law was a gunner in it and I believe this is the same one he was shot down in. I can get the two of you connected.

I served with the D101 Hawks at Liftmaster Pad in 1968-1969.
Wondering who takes care of this website?

Approximately 54 years in July of 1968 the following occurred. From the combat proven ranks of 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 crew chiefs, 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. Some were KIA and some made it home to the states and all are owed a debt that can never be paid. Please take time to read the D101Hawks Honor Roll on this website.

Nice to see the C model in there. I have a picture of our ship the Black Angel which was a D Company the Black Angels before it became the Hawks. If you would like B company became D company around May or June of 68.
