Served in VMGR-152 from May 68 to June 69, lucky to have missed all the nasty stuff at Khe Sanh. My time in ichi go ni was spent in the hydraulic shop and also 3 months of flight duty as a mech. I flew mostly IFR missions along with some cargo and pax including Chu Lai, Quang Tri, Dong Ha, and Phu Bi. The first bird I flew crew on was 796 which is also the one that took me to Da Nang in August of '68 for my 3 months in country. Of all the squadrons I was in 152 brings back some great memories.
I went back to Da Nang in the spring of 2012 for a four monthe study abroad program with SUNY Brockport. The program house is 2 miles away from the patch of broken blacktop that was 152s flight line....what a trip.
