Great photos I served my AIT at Rucker in 69 Huey Crewchief then on to Nam.

Neighbor down the road had a Cobra ( bought in an auction ) from the Cav. He has it mounted as a wind vane sure looked good. Lasted a couple years till the goverment took it away about a year ago. The Cobra was from the Cav 1/9 stationed at the same base as us Phoc Vihn. I sure miss looking at the best looking wind vane too.

Never stationed at Rucker but sure brought back memories of my time at Ft Cambell when we were transitioning from Airborne to Air Assault/ Air Mobile.

I was way down south, did many photo things from the back seat of a bird dog, and supported a lot of artillery. I ran an engine maintenance shop. Replace many engines and did a lot of test flights from the back seat. Bird dogs sure had a place. Thanks for your service.
