I was in both Army Aviation Units at the bottom of the hill, the 13th Trans (Lt Hel)...and the 151st Maint (CHFM)provisional. I have lots of photos and names of people, and aircraft and their tail numbers. I was there from Mar 1961 thru Jun 1962. Yes, I had the involuntary extension forced on us at the time. I was a mechanic on the H-21's, also worked in Tech Supply as a TDY job, and was on the very first I Corps Rifle Team at Camp Red Cloud, the "Guardians". AND we all had to drive the 5 Ton trucks hauling recovered aircraft from where they crashed. I was in a crash my second month there, my H-21 had engine failure and we auto-rotated into the dry rice paddy just outside the Camp Stanley fence. The morning I left Camp Stanley for the USA, we had a total crash on the runway (PAP) it was really bad. Then I had to get on on and fly to Inchon at lunchtime that day. Yes, I was plenty glad when we got there. I came back to the USA via the USNS Barrett. 15 days on the Ocean. See a FEW of my photos on my web page at:
Would VERY MUCH like to hear from any of the guys there when I was.
