114th Aviation Company
I was just sitting down to compose this when I got an
email from Bob Brown that he had been notified that Bill Tulloch had passed
away on December 13, 2016. Later, on December 22, 2016 Charlie Stone
also passed away. We have lost quite a few of the original and first
year men this year, and that makes it even more important for you to put the
reunion at Enterprise, AL, September 13 Ė 17 on your calendar.
It was fifty-three years ago last May that the 114th Aviation
Company arrived at Vinh Long and began a service record that set the example
for Army Aviation to follow. The men who served in the company, and the
support units who made it possible for the company to do its job, have every
right to be proud of their service. You stepped up and gave your all for
your brother soldiers. You pressed on when the going was tough and the
enemy was trying their best to defeat you. You have earned a WELL DONE,
and the thanks from those you took into harmís way and brought home.
So, letís try hard to gather together in 2017 to celebrate the ordinary men
who did extraordinary jobs in a hot, humid, and dangerous environment.
Letís remember the 72 fellow Knights who did not return home to their family
and friends, and letís remember our brothers who have passed from our midst
over the years.
Bob Ayersí daughter Susan Fieder, had done a marvelous job putting together
the reunion. Details are elsewhere in the newsletter. We have
several interesting trips to Ft. Rucker; and you just pay for your meal.
So, start putting together your flight plans, Cobras will be available to
escort you in, and the LZ is green. Encourage you friends to attend and
letís enjoy the fellowship of a great group of men.
