C troop is what the cover article is about and the right seat of the AH6 on the cover is Cpt. Dick Brown my scout platoon Cmdr. The inside of the article has "Just Say It Was the Comancheros" which was a 101 assault helicopter company supporting the RVN Invasion into Laos and when the author of the article ask who it was the CO, Bob Clewell, said Just Say ---------. He apologized for saying that after the article was published and at the time did not know it was for an article. The body on the stretcher, page1, is 1Lt Butch Simpson, one of my scout pilots.
