Hey Tom! we probably met sometime or another for sure, I was shotgun for old Ferko a couple of times on those guntube runs. Any way 1st time Imet Ferko he was a Corporal that came to 560th Maint right next to the 5th Phu Tai. old Ferko had been in god knows how long busted more then once.
I rotated out 12 Feb 1968 with a bunch of orignal 560th guys. Were you at English the nite Charlie got the Ammo Dump,if you were you'd remmeber. the hot shit from dump hit those avgas bladders and talk about high flames,still got a piece of shrapnel landed in my truck. Did you know SS Black he had Maint contact team @ English working on some 105's
I was a driver most my tour! Small World huh BRO!
