I served with LTC Dunn August 71 - 72. I am glad that there are still crew around to tell the tale. I miss the comrades, but not the death.

Richard D. Hudson, regarding your comment below of January 24, 2018, I can assure you that the theater on Brooks Field is most assuredly the WAYBUR and not WILBUR theater. I worked at the Armor Board depicted in that picture for two years post VN and have a high resolution digital shot from a visit in 2006 that clearly displays the name. I believe it is used in recent years as a lecture and presentation hall. Hope this helps.
