Without young people we'd likely not know and enjoy the freedoms so many
take for granted in this great nation. We need to count our blessings more often and keep abreast at least of the major goings on that affect
so many but seem to be uninterested. That way our chances of putting higher caliber men and women in office is much enhanced.

Hello -- this is my first day as a member. My dad was a fighter pilot in
WW1, first flew with the French. Then in the 94th, flying a Spad. I have two
large photos, one with dad beside one of his Spads and one of a different Spad he flew. He crashed twice but luck was with him. Not injured. Was on take off.
I have tried to find records on him but have not had luck doing so.
Capt Eddie Rickenbacker flew in same outfit with Dad.
I am very happy and pleased that your organization let's someone who is not a pilot, me, be a member.
Would appreciate any suggestions or comments.
Dad's name was Thomas Aaron Curtis, went by T.A. Curtis, or Thomas.
Thanks again. Tom A. Curtis

I was there. I remember this operation. I had just been promoted to Aircraft Commander of a Huey, Company A/501st Aviation Battalion, Bien Hoa. We carried the 173rd in, re-supplied them, and carried them out. There were a lot of dead and wounded. I had to reprimand my door gunner, when I saw him opening body bags. I asked him, "What are you doing?" he replied "I just want to see what they died of." I could have hit him. I said, "Sergeant, zip that body bag back up, and don't ever doe that again. These are American soldiers, and they deserve your respect!"
