Comments: In March '68 I was halfway through Hook school at Fort Eustis when we were informed that the GO-GO birds were no more. I was sad as well as furious, because EVERYONE in my class wanted to fly the GO-GO's. 90% of our instructors were 1st Air Cav and some actually flew on ACH-47's. This website lets me dream what could have been had they survived, but I'm proud to have served with Co. B of the 228th in the normal Hook mode. Good luck.

Comments: Absolutely great site! Congratulations! Hugh (Buzz) Buzzell called tonight and told me about it. I was in RVN 66, 67, 68 and flew on 45, 54, and mostly 49. After we lost 54 and unit started to deactivate went to B 1/9 to aerial scouts. So great to see the photos. Have lost touch with almost all. I know Walt Lacy is (was) in Tennessee. Lost track of Bruce Sally when he was flying (civilian) in Alaska. And all of those comments about Paul Hicks......Was there ever a finer gentleman? Those quirky little jokes....and that smile when he talked about the family he cared about so much..... Gee...the memories flood back....remember Captain (Ch)Conroy ??(maybe Conrad?), our resident priest? Remember when he went on the gun run with us wearing a helmet with "Sin Buster" painted on it? Turned out the mission was hot! What a great bunch of guys. Bless you all!

Comments: Linda and Jeanie Carpenter and Trish Starkey had a dream to be of service to their country during the VietNam war. Their dream came true as The Hilltop Singers sang their way into the hearts of the servicemen in Southeast Asia. We are grateful to you who were such loyal supporters of us and our dream. The spirit of the group lives on in our quest for self actualization and yet the excitement of that time is still very real in our hearts. Thank you for believing in us - The Hilltop Singers- Linda, Jeanie and Trish. Continue to believe in us, because dreams still come true. I hope you enjoy our website and seeing the pictures from our shows. The Hilltop Singers will be performing in Washington, DC at the annual reunion of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association from July 2-5, 2000.

Comments: Great Website! I was in the 400th TC det.(178th Boxcars) at Phu Loi in 1966 when one of the Guns-a-Go-Go (I think it was Easy Money) went down after receiving enemy fire. Some others from my out to the site and striped it so that it could be brought in for repair. They had planned to sling it in with another chinook but were able to get a Skycrane in from up north. I belive there or only 3 cranes in country at that time. The airframe was brought in to the 605th area at Phu Loi and I was on the crew that put if back together. There was extensive dmanage. One of the aft rotor blades had cut halfway thru the fusilage. All of the running gear had to be replaced. I especially remember how difficult it was to connect the hydraulic pumps for the flight control system. If my memory serves me, there were dice, a poker hand (a royal flush?) and other appropriate items painted near the name. I'll have to dig through my stored junk to see if I have any photos. I remember taking pictures of it being brought in.

Comments: It has been about a month now since I found the Go-Go websites by Jim and Frank. They are unbelieveable! I had the honor of being with this unit in 1967. I joined the unit from 228th H&H Co. soon after Cost of Living was lost. I was a 67U mechanic and finally got with a hook unit. I gunned on both 49 and 54, between KP duty!HaHa. Towards the end of my tour, mostly was on 54 or Birth Control. I cannot put into words the emotions I felt when I first viewed these two websites. Another former Gun-A-Go-Go crewmember, Dave Borrego, lives in Colorado too. We have wondered many times what happened to some of the others and to Easy Money. It was almost too much for both of us to find out that Easy Money was being restored! Then something else even more amazing! During a phone conversation with Jim Ketcham, Dave Borrego's name comes up. Jim thought Dave's name sounded familiar. About an hour later he calls me back with stunning news. Doug Sprouse, who is doing the restoration of Easy Money, finds one of Dave Borrego's dogtags inside the fuselage of 49!! All Dave could say was "It must be providence!" Neither one of us has ever been in touch with any of the other crewmembers since we left 'Nam. I was at Ft. Benning after 'Nam and was breifly assigned with Guy Purdy, Jim Frye (pilot), Jerry Richards (pilot), Tracy, Sgt Pullman, all former Guns. Now with the websites, I have been in contact with Guy P., Jim Frye, Jerry Richards, Tom Lilly. I just wish this could of happened 25 years ago!! WHAT A TRIP!!!That should be some ceremony at Redstone in the spring!! Looking forward to hearing from any and all Guns crewmembers and anyone we flew with or for. Again thanks to Jim Ketcham and Frank White. How can we ever repay you!!??
