About Living, Dying and
Good and Bad things
we Remember

| Table of Contents |

If you haven't "Been There" and "Done That," you need to read these stories.  Each author presentd on this page was an Aviation Crew Member who served in Vietnam. These men lived through what most can't even imagine.  I have also started to add some stories by Grunts.  These are exceptional stories.  I want everyone to understand war from the ground and the air.

These stories are posted exactly as written by the author.
Some stories may contain words you consider offensive.
