    BloodWings are when they are pushed into your chest not the holders when earned. I was with 1st Recon Battalion Conpany Charlie.Seem we chewed some of the same mud I was in from 68/74. Team Snakey.
    Welcome home bro!

    Still say Recon types were crazier than any airplane driving FAC...Hell, we stayed IN our planes as long as they were runningand did our job; y'all jumped out of perfectly good airplanes to do your job...;g ;g

    Guess the fact that y'all were armed made a little difference. Darn smoke rocket had to be a direct hit to hurt someone...;f ;f ;f

    I wish! Goofed off to much in high school and didn't have the grades :(

    Went enlisted right after high school. Though most of my heros graduated from there and I go there at least once a year to visit the musem, vist Bobby Lee and Stonewall. It's only about a 45 minute trip from Roanoke.
