Here is a photo of me taken in front of the FAC
Hooch at Phouc Vinh the morning after my cubicle was hit
with a rocket. Im in the Army flying suit the 1/9th
gave me and is now in the Vietnam Archives at Texas Tech.
Im wearing my Cav hat which was one of the things to
survive the hit.
Here is a picture of my OV-10. Notice the Cav
patch painted on the nose. It was on both sides. I also had
the 1/9th crossed sabers painted on the nose I have in a
separate picture. I also had the crossed sabers painted on
the back of my helmet which I also have in a photo. An
interesting side light. The paint job was illegal so every
time the bird went Bien Hoa for maintenance they would paint
it out. When the bird returned to Phouc Vinh my crew chief
would park it with the paint pots beside him and it would be
repainted before the engine cooled off.
