Blue Star #64-13773 is presently on display in Garland, Texas as part of the 71st AHC Vietnam Memorial.  If you're ever in the Fort Worth area, e-mail Ron Seabolt at rattlerfirebird@email.msn.com and let him know you'll be in town.  Of course it isn't wearing the Blue Star now but rather a "Rattler's" emblem on the nose.  I suspect there is still a faint outline of the Blue Star under the rattlesnake art which will be readily visible to any old member of the 48th.
