Just a little background on the 46th. Special Forces Company Camp at Nam Pung Dam. We were attached to the 1st. SFG on Okinawa. I served at Nam Pung Dam from August 1967 to September 1968. We had a SF "B" Team- B4610 and several 'A" Team. I was with A-4613. While there we built a large medical clinic at the front gate, a 1000 ft. paved airstrip, converted all bunkers to round cast concrete with thick concrete caps. We ran armed medical civic action missions all around the camp but mostly towards Laos. There was a number of Thai Special Forces units at the camp too. The camp had no organic air units. All helicopter support came from the Air Force - CH-3 / HH-53 from NKP. We had some Army Huey support. I have many photos and stories too many for a short post.

I was assigned to the 334th Armed Helicopter Company in Oct of 1967 thru Oct 1968. After about 3 months working in the maintenance hanger I became a AH-1G Crew Chief with the Playboy Platoon. If anyone looks at this site and was assigned to the Playboys during the time I was there please send email. There were also two dogs in the company that I remember they were Sam and Gladys (I think). I was also known as "Boots" The Platoon Sergeant at that time I believe was SSG Smith or Smitty.

So very fortunate flying U21's based in Long Thanh. Most missions were flying out of Saigon to "anyplace" having an airfield in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand

I so often remember my 3 best Rucker Flight School buddies from Rucker. All three were killed in their first 3-months flying "Bird Dogs." I consider all to be heros and offer a sincere salute.

Proud member of the four horsemen from Mar 72 - Sep 72 after reassignment from the 101st by way of a short stint in HHC 13th CAB. I see my old helicopter I crewed, the Post Falls Express on your page and a few familiar faces.

Just found your web page and want to commend you on a job well done. Have several slides of my tour as operations officer to B Troop would be willing to share them if wanted. Time is taking its tole on them but could be used. Would like to hear from anyone who served during 69-70 and be brought up to par with what is happening with the unit. Am life member of VHPA and attended the Orlando reunion last year but saw nothing in display areas from the Blackhawks or dutchmasters.
Thanks for the web provided.
Sincerely

Larry Hudson, 03 B Troop 1/7 Air Cav

I have been trying to locate and communicate with one of our crewchiefs', another, believe it or not, SP/4? Richard Doke. I have read of at least one ariel incident that Doke was involved in with the 498th Med evac. I was a crewchief at the same time frame as he was, although I was assigned to the 119th AHC as a Huey mechanic in An Khe from August 70 - Dec 70, then down to Tay Ninh as crewchief with the 187th AHC through August 71. I retired from the Nevada Army National Guard in 1996 with the rank of Major. As far as I can assertain, there are only 7 Richard Doke's in the entire USA, what were the chances that two of us were in Viet Nam at the same time frame and both as crewchief's of Huey's? I would really like to communicate with him and if you can help I would be very gratefull. Thanks, Rick Doke
