Tough job out in the vil--tell your dad thanks from Dustoff 82--I was one of the guys who came to get his patients to fly them to the hospital. Duc Pho was not a "nice" area as the memories of My Lai were still fresh in the villagers' minds.

Awesome post, Chew. I see '69 on the PH citation. What was the date of the Stars and Stripes article?

Some bad ju-ju right there. One of Fort Worth's big-time defense attorneys got his start defending William "Machine-Gun" Calley after My Lai.

Thanks for sharing that Bobby. That is an awesome glimpse into his-story and cool seeing that General Abrams signed the Purple Heart.

Thanks Rob. It was a shame....returning service men getting out of uniform as soon as possible due to the hostile political climate. It makes me angry to say the least.

We can only hope they're still making men like Mr. Minchew, as well as, people who understand the true meaning of a hero such as him. Thanks for this and thanks to ALL veterans for your service.
