Tragically accidentally shot through the leg
med evaced to conus ... Retired ... Still doing great



I had a low level Engine Failure West of Tuy Hoa in bad country
I managed to get the thing on the ground undamaged
The ROK's sent a company to secure the area
Then the Chinook came in, rigged the gunship and left.
Then the ROK's left as it was getting dark
Ove Larsen, Joker 29 was my wing man that day
When he got back from refueling
He asked who had picked up the crew....
Finally a Battalion slick came in and picked us up
True story!
