Hard to say; pretty wild in high school for a teenager living alone for the last 6 months of HS, I wanted to fly so bad I knew I needed to devote everything I could muster up to graduate and become a Warrant Officer (mind over matter); I put my mind to it, nothing else mattered. Vietnam taught me more than anything else; dedication (to our mission) and devotion (to our troops) to do whatever was necessary to enhance our ground soldiers survival. Vietnam was definitely the ground work to a great career flying Army Helicopters, from lift to attack helicopters. So I guess in reality all three played an equal and very important role in my development.

Entertaining!
Just a thanks to all those that herded the "Fast movers, Sandis, Cobras, Hueys," and a few that had those semi-gloss quite birds. Had a need to depend on all of them at one time or another. I'm still alive.

Great post. I too was reminded of Army flight school at Fort Walters, Texas. Attempting to learn how to hover I said to myself, "What have I done". Class 70-17 at Walters and 70-19 at Rucker. Americal Division, I Corp Vietnam.

Sure do Senior. It was a camper in over flow at Trumbo that complained about a helo blowin his stuff around that got that area restricted from RV use few years ago. We retired military campers seem to forget who's land we're squatting on sometimes.

I remember the TH-55, primary flight at Rucker. Bubble canopy, Lycoming IO 360 engine. I think VNE was 80 mph (not knots) due to the bubble canopies tendency to push in past about 90 or 100 mph . . . unless you put your foot out to keep it from pushing in, while using the other foot on both pedals (that's a trick). Then UH-1H, on solo flights we played around and came up with a really cool maneuver, which we later found out was called a RTT, strictly prohibited for students . . .

It's a wonder we didn't crunch more aircraft in Flight School! My roommate crashed a TH-55, one of the other guys rolled a Huey doing slopes . . . .It was an expensive class for the Army!

Flew Hueys and Hooks, mostly Hueys. Liked the Hueys more.

Dan, I think you and I were stationed together at Nellingen. You flew 58's?

Anyway, flew fixed wing, slingwings, and worked on them (A&P). Lots of great stories, lots of great people. Miss it.
