Comments: Just checking in. There was someone asking about SP 4 Roger Watson, who was my gunner for a short time for the colonel in the 145th. They were asking about the prisoner transfer (in Cambodia I think). Anyway I found a picture of him and I during that exchange and would be happy to send it on to his family.
Comments: I was assigned to HHD 45th Trans Bn (UH1 Section) form 26 Apr 63 to Apr 64. CPT Bounds and later on MAJ Paul Schreck were the Section commanders. It was the slick helicopter section (Iroqous) located on a helipad across from the main terminal at Ton Son Nhut airport.

Comments: Hello, I'm very grateful for this website and feel very fortunate to have found it. I was recently visiting my dad and found an old Zippo lighter inscribed with 145th Avn Ba on it, so I googled it, and am very glad I did. My father, Donald Woodson (Sr) served with you guys sometime in 1967. He never talked much about his experiences in Viet Nam. As a matter of fact, I'm learning more from this website about what went on over there than my dad ever told us about. But then, as with most true heros, he never talked much about his time over there. I was was just a kid and I don't have many memories from that time.
Anyway, he's getting on in age now, can't stand up without help, can't walk, needs a lot of help with everything and has a bad case of CRS as I imagine a lot of you guys do too.
I just wanted to express my gratitude for this very nice website describing my father's other family.
Thanks! Don Woodson Jr, Very proud Army brat.
