The back of Rick Schwab's SPH-4 helmet neatly adorned with hand painted Condor of C troop, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment - "That artwork is the handiwork of Lt. Pete Forame, a "strack" troop from McLean, Va. He was a slick driver like me, and we became great friends. He is in one of my photos at cav-condors.org, and I have another great black & white photo of us that would be very cool for your exhibit. I was very excited about his work and am pleased to still have it. Sadly, Pete was shot down and killed either on Christmas Day or the day after, 1971. His name is on the Wall in DC." - Rick Schwab

"My nephew, Will Latimer, was killed in Jan. 19, 1971. I wear the Condor patch to honor Will and all of you Condors" Billy Pat Latimer.

Note from Jim Newman-"Billy Pat Latimer is on our net. His nephew, CPT Will Latimer was my Scout Platoon Cmdr. and bunked in my hooch until Jan 19, 1971 when he was hit in the head. His crew chief flew the OH6A back to Phu Bai and put it on the runway. I had someone pick it up and fly over to the 85th Evac Hosp on the South side of the runway but Will was DOA. His death was instant and I think the crew chief did one hell of a job getting the LOH back home.
