War Story:
This is the story behind the WIA on February 5,1969, while serving as crewcheif on 64-14085, call sign "Viking 22." The unit was the 121st AHC based at Soc Trang, RVN. We were called out on a fire support mission near Soc Trang, I don't remember the location but it was within 50 miles of our base. A company of 9th ARVNs were pinned down by some bad guys estimated strength was unknown. To lay this out better 2 UH-1B models, light fire team, came on to set of tree lines sort of shaped like a Y, with scattered hooches in the open fields. We were flying wingman, 085 was a "Hog" 19 shot pods and nose mounted 40 mm chunker. When we got there, the 9th guys ID themselves with smoke, if we were headed north along the longer tree line the freindlies would have been to our right in that tree line, the bad guys were in the left fork of the Y. So we circled right and descended over the friendlies and came up on an echelon left formation. We came back along the tree line to the north and my pilot dropped us down below lead ( this turned out not be a good thing), and fire came out of a hootch between us and the left arm of the tree line. We called fire and I returned fire to the hootch, wham, a round came through the left windshield. The A/C called we were hit and broke right away from the fire. The windshield had a hole in it and the P/P's head was leaning down, so I jumped up and looked over there was blood coming out of his neck, chin, and cheeks. So I started to pull the seat pins to lean him back to get him out of there. I heard this voice over intercom "Stewart don't drop this fucking seat!" It was Mr. King the pilot, his face shield had been down (good for him) it turned out it was just plexi glass cuts. You have been there, there was a lot of conversation between lead ship, our ship, ground units, and my gunner, it was always so hectic when shit hit the fan. The bottom line Mr. King and the flight were PO'ed now, so we weren't going home over some cuts. He was returning to the fight so we could kick some butt. So we regrouped and went back in there and lit up the hootch, tree line, and everything else that stood in our way. We got 2 confirm kills that day and the 9th went on about their business. I spent the evening replacing a windshield and green house. So that's what I remember it is pretty clear because of two things, that pilot , Mr. King gave me my senior check ride at Ft. Wolters, got a 98 by the way. The other part was my gunner argued the whole time I had called the target wrong, but he was or could be such and A-hole.
