Hello! My name is CPT Mike Gallagher. I am an RA Captain who is currently serving as an Army ROTC instructor at the University of Michigan. I think SGT Canamare was a graduate of the University of Michigan. His name is engraved on a Plaque here at our Track and Field Complex. A reporter from the Ann Arbor news wants to write a story about him but needs some more information. Can you help me?
Thanks

Hi! I am George's second cousin. My father was very close to George. He's shown me some of George's letter from Vietnam. What sort of info can I help you with? I can get in touch with my father and I'm sure he will be very honored and all too happy to help.
Thank you,

Paula-
Thank you for your reply. I apologize for taking so long to respond, but I got busy on other things and was probably waiting for a phone call. I was clearing out some old files and found some notes on George. I did another search and found you had responded! If you're still interested I would like to gather some information on George's service for a future Memorial Day or Veterans Day article at U of M.
Thank You,
Mike Gallagher

I was troop clerk in '68-'69. We used to run together sometimes in the evenings. He was well respected, responsible, intelligent and clean-cut. I remember the shock of learning of his loss from one of the guys returning from patrol (I think if he was Villnueva). The Troop had a formation and service for him soon after. It was very moving to see his name on the Wall on New Years of 2001.

Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry it took me so long to respond. In the back of my mind I was waiting for a phone call and never went back to the Blue Ghosts forum.
I'd be interested in whatever you could tell me about the unit. The patches, insignia, troop pictures, etc... I will still be able to get an article written in the Ann Arbor news about George's service for this Memorial Day or another time this year. What did he have to day about his time at the University of Michigan?
Thanks,

My wife's father was named John Q. Morris, everyone called him "buck". He was a Blue Ghost for two tours of duty, I believe in 68-69 and 72-73. He flew snakes. Unfortunately he and his wife were killed in an automobile accident in '76 and my wife was left an orphan. We have recently found some pictures and other documentation about him and I would love to get in touch with anyone who might have served with him. Any help or information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I new Buck, he was my cousin. The last time I saw him he was home on leave, after being shot down in Nam and injuring his leg. Buck was one hell of a guy, I don't think he was scared of anything. I was about five years younger than him, and loved it when we would go up to Fort Pearce and see him and the family.
I remember seeing your wife only one time when she was just a baby. Buck was in the service then so I didn't get to see him much after that. I got to see her Uncle Jimmy, and Grandmother Beth Lee at my fathers funeral, about three years ago.
My brother has met other pilots who served with Buck, and they have told him that he was one of the best pilots they ever saw. My brother is older than me and can probably give you more information than I can.
Good luck with your search. Your father was someone you can be proud of. I hope you see this as your post was from over three years ago. Bill

Comments: Hello to all. Dennis and Barbara has gotten the second newsletter posted and I know some of you have received it 'cause I've gotten calls.Continue to pass the word to any and all former brothers, it is a shame that Jessie Watson passed away this past summer. As you've read, his home is very close to Rocky Mount, NC and I feel he would have tried to come . . . we have to do a better job of finding each other ! Pensacola on Mar. 30, 31 & April 1, 2001 is set. The site is the Crowne Plaza Grand Hotel, Pensacola. It is located in the heart of the old historic district with many great resturants and saloons near by.You can call now and book your reservations, call the 800# and ask for the "BlueGhost Reunion", the block of rooms is set. Barbara wanted to have an insert for this newsletter outlining everything and a registration form. I resisted it because I didn't think we were ready yet. We aren't in the reservation business, the hotel management has agreed to handle everything. But Barbara was right, I did need to have a form attached; 'cause we need your arrival info, # in your party, # for dinner, etc., etc. So, keep an eye on this site and www.blueghosts.com for the up-to-the-minute ready line. I apologize to any and all 'cause the certificates were not ready as promised. A few minor glitches, I just wanted them done 1st class. I think that when you do see them, you will agree that they were worth the wait. Thanks, Bob Wiggins

Mr. Wiggins,

Jessie Watson was my Dad. I saw your posting from 2000 when I was surfing the web about my Dad's passing. Did you know him? I would love to hear about what life was like with him during his time spent as a Blue Ghost. He proudly hung pictures, plaques and other Blue Ghost items on his office wall for years. Now they are hanging in my parent's home in Fayetteville, NC. As you know he passed away nearly 4 years ago. I am his youngest daughter, Jessica. I was born 17 years after my sister. Some of you who knew my Dad perhaps don't know he had another daughter. My sister was just a baby at the time my Dad was in Vietnam. She is married with three children. Her husband is also in the Army. I was married a year and a half ago and we are expecting our first child. Mom still keeps in touch with some of the ladies she became close with over the years in the Military. I would love to hear what people remember about my Dad. Thanks.

Started with F/8 Troop in the Rifle Platoon, "graduated" to Nighthawk Team and was the free 60 gunner, then moved HQ as the RTO. Amazing group of dedicated and skillfull men. Proud to be a part of it all. If anyone remembers SGT Fergie, send me a line. Welcome Home. Best to you.

I was one of the first besides sp/4 Kidd to help build and fly as crew members. We had had one minigun, Zion search light, and a starlight scope on the left side. On the right side was another minigun, 50 Cal, and a free 60. This was a crew of 7 plus all AMMO. The 1st ship was done 1969 and we had to make another nighthawk ship because the 1st one was too heavy with ammo and got stressed out. Built another one with 1 minigun and the rest was the same. It lightened our load alot. This ship was built in 69 also and I left in late 70 and the ship was still flying.

I would go to the education center on the base.

They have counselors who can tell you what to do and where to apply.

Also, if you will do some surfing, the Navy Leauge, and a bunch of other Military associated organizations offer grants and loans.

It may eat up some time, but nothing is free.

I remember both of these events. Petrucci was fined $500.00 ($250.00 for each shark) I was just numb about Sam's death, wasn't it just an engine or transmission failure which caused them to come down? I know he was killed by the main rotor during egress from the crash. I too am writing my memoirs of that time for my grandchildren and nephews. Please contact me. I was a gunner and crew chief for Nighthawk Sep70 to Sep71. I am trying to remember the date we were transferred to D Troop 1/1 Cav but we stayed in Chu Lai. Mario Cruz thinks it was after April of '71. Welcome Home.

Chuck Martin was the Hughes Tech Rep. (civilan) assigned to us. He worked very close with me in the Service Platoon in 67/68 when C/7/17th moved to Chu Lai and was redesignated F/8. I saw him again in 1970 when he lived in Marina Del Ray close to Los Angeles. He was laid off by Hughes and flew tuna spotting helos in Calif. for a while. Last time I heard from him was ~ 1980 (?) when he was flying and maintaining a small fleet of "commercial OH-6's" in Indonesia.

Update on funeral for Gary from Mike mcDonald

Subject: Gary's Memorial

The Memorial Service for Gary Freeman is set. It will be held at the Pacific Helicopter Hangar, Kahului, Maui, Saturday, May 31, 2003 at 11:00. The Mortuary is, Ballard Family Mortuary, 440 Ala Makani St. Kahului, Maui, Hawaii, 96732. The phone there is 808-871-7911. Gary's Memorial will include FULL Military Honors including a LIVE bugaler.

The pilots at PacHelo are trying to get permission to place a marker at the crash site. Today, some of the guys approached the Comissioners that will administer the "Island Reserve" and they talked favorably. If anyone would desire to contribute to this fund I will be posting a bank account number in a couple of days. Of course if anyone wants to send flowers or messages i know the family will appreciate them. ALSO....it is too late to mail anything from the mainland so i will INDIVIDUALLY give Blue Ghost and other friends, Cindy's address so you may mail her direct at a later date

Things may seem to be moving slowly but remember we are on an "Island" 2000 miles from the West Coast. Believe me being on MAUI TIME is DIFFERENT. The autopsy was completed late today and Gary will be at the Mortuary tomorrow.

We are doing everything we can to comfort Cindy and Gary's sons from this great distance. They will arrive here on Friday and be here for a few days. Their visit will include a flyover of the crash site (their request) . Being a former bombing range and covered in unexploaded ordinance they cannot get out of the helicopter in the area of the crash. Also on this flight we will sprinkle Gary's ashes on Maui in a place yet to be determined.

If anyone has questions or suggestions you can contact me at the hangar 808-871-9771 after 9am HAWAII time.

This is the daughter of David Troxel. He asked me to see if I could find anything on the Blue Ghosts on the internet since he is not computer savvy. He will be so excited to find out about this gem of a web site. Dave was with F-Troop 8th Cav. 196 Brigade Danang 68-69ish. He has a bunch of pictures that I will scan for him and send in to post on the site. Anyone knowing him let me know. He is alive and well in Longview TX. More info to come as soon as I get a chance to talk to him today. . .

Received this from Mike"Duck" McDonald a few minutes ago. Updated information will be posted.

I find this email extremely hard to write but I must inform the BlueGhost 1969 of the passing of Gary Freeman. On May 22, 2003 while piloting a UH-1H helicopter on the island of Kahoolawe in Hawaii, Gary suffered mechanical failure and crashed. The helicoper burned in a post impact fire. It appears now, that a "longline" that was attached to the hook became entangled in the tailrotor with the subsiquent loss of the main rotor blades due to "mast bumping". Gary was recovered late yesterday afternoon and a small ceremony was held upon his final flight to Maui. His body was draped in the flag of our nation as he was honored with respect from his fellow pilots and friends and former VET'S. The Police Dept. Chaplin held a short ceremony shortly after Gary's arrival back at the hangar. As more information is available i will post to the Blueghost site.

Tom Hauptman and I are here taking care of his personal needs and are in touch with Cindy, Gary's wife. At this time it is unclear what memorial ceremony's will be held but i hope to have that info in a timely manner so all that want to attend can. The autopsy will not be held until Tuesday, due to the long wekend, so there will be a delay in Gary's journey to his final rest. A memorial will be held here on Maui for all the employees of Pacific Helicopters and Gary's friends and I will post the time of this Memorial also.

I would just like to pass on my sympathies to all who knew Gary Freeman. My father David Earley worked with Gary in New Guinea (Pacific Helicopters). He spent time with our family and became and great friend to all of us. Gary will be remembered forever in our hearts and we've lost a wonderful & generous human being. I will always remember his kind hearted nature and smile. He will be sorely missed.

I got the privilege of flying with Gary Freeman while I worked with Pacific Helicopters in 1999 - 2000. Gary was a kind man and a great pilot. He was always smiling and was a pleasure to be around. I know he had a special comraderie with Mike McDonald and Tom Hauptman. They were and always will be 'brothers' 'till the end. The end just came sooner for one of them. Rest in peace Gary, and "Scouts Out!"

I have been in contact with the Director of Intelligence of the group searching for lost personnel in South East Asia during the Vietnam war. I asked him what he knew concerning Murphy and Eads lost in 70.This is what he wrote:
As for Murphy/Eads (our case 1603) we found the site in 1995 and excavated a
site 9 x 17 meters in 1996. We found skin of the aircraft with the word
"GHOST" hand-painted on the side. We found Eads ID tag, two watch bands,
two pairs of metalic boot soles and two armor chest plates.

Sent all of the material to the Life Sciences Laboratory in San Antonio and
they concluded that two U.S. Army crewmen had sustained fatal injuries in
this crash. Unfortunately we did not recover their remains.

I was on guard duty in a bunker on the cliff above where the ship landed. It was right next to the MAG 36 chopper pad. It was New Years Eve, 1966. It was raining like hell and I kept watching the lights on the ship get closer and closer to the rocks. Finally, I heard this tremendous screech. I called the communications shack and told them about the noise. They came down and we all stood around wandering what had happened. The next morning, some of us went down to the rocks below and picked up item that had escaped from the hull. It was quite an experience.

What would you like to know about Captain Arnold " Dusty" Holm ? I knew him in flight school and was in the same unit in Vietnam with him. He was listed as missing in action ( presumed?) killed in action , on June 11,1972 in Northern Military Region 1, southwest of Quang Tri, RVN. His body has not been recovered. He was the Scout Platoon leader (Blue Ghost White) flying OH-6's and was shot down with his crewchief, presumed to be hit by a rocket propelled grenade or missle. He left a widow and a small child.

At the time I was a radio transmission operator at HQ in a bunker off the airstrip. The Blueghosts had been moved temporaraly from DaNang (Marble Mountain airbase) north to Hue to support the ARVN honchos and US Advisors removal from forward firebases. The NVA were coming across the DMZ into Quang Tri provence from the north and from the east. This was a major offensive and they came with vehicles; jeeps,trucks and tanks, such was not seen before. As I remember it Dusty's platoon was on a recon mission, there were two scout choppers, Capt.Holms chopper came in over a rise and spotted a caravan of trucks, they thought they were ARVN's and went back for a second look, the canvas came off the trucks, these were NVA regulars, there were rocket propelled grenades,51 cal. machine guns and much small arms fire. Dusty's bird was shot down. A second scout chopper went in because they saw what they said was the pilot or crew chief on the ground running. When this chopper went in it was shot down too. There such intense fire from the ground, the cobra gunships unloaded and the platoon had to be called back, artillery was brought in. As I recall, two choppers and four men were lost that day. Next day our unit went back for search and rescue but never found him. As I recall, both choppers on the ground were destroyed in place. This is one of the worst days I remember. Dusty was a striking figure and good natured. Hope this helps.

I am an original member of the 570th T.C. Detachment that built up at Ft. Campbell and flew on the C-141 direct to Chu Lai in June 1968 to support the Blueghosts. I am very proud of my service and worked with some great guys. At some time before I left one year later, a picture was taken of the whole unit in front of the new hangar. I do not remember getting a copy before I left. I've seen copies of the picture, and thanks to Doc Anderson I have a machine copy. These copies are not very clear and detailed. Does anyone have a clean original copy of the picture we can use to place on this website ? With some work we could identify everyone and add the names. Sure hope someone can help. Burkie.

Spook ! So glad to hear from you. Yes, I did get the picture and it is in great condition. I am trying to determine the best means to have it physically duplicated, then have it scanned and made available on the website if Dan will post it. Of course, once the copies are available I will get one to you. Will contact you then about address, etc. You can shake some cobwebs like me and try to put names to all the faces!
I will have 30 years at The Hoover Company in May and would like to retire, but cannot live on my early retirement pension - unless I find an easier office-type job as a fill until I reach 62. Never limited myself to one woman so everything I have is mine and stays mine. Computer business analyst now - getting tooooooo stressful. Perhaps we can meet and greet at KC. I am still sending Baby Huey (Tom Burns the machinist in the 570th) documents and copies and paid his BlueGhost dues last year. He has physical problems. Huey maintains contact with Norm Chappell - originally from Baytown Texas. Remember that tobacco chewer? Apparently he has medical and family problems. We are all getting old. Please stay safe and well, and in touch. God Bless!! Burkie

He worked with us in the 570th TC Detachment and was with the outfit in Kentucky when we formed up.

Cliff was a great guy. I met him at Ft. Campbell when the 570th T.C. Detachment was building up to go to Nam. He was in maintenance for a few months, was a good mechanic and team leader, then decided he wanted to fly. If I remember correctly, he extended his tour in Nam in order to get out of the Army a few months early, or else he would have flown home with a group of us late in June 1969. May God Bless him. I also will look to see if I have any pictrues of Cliff at Fort Campbell or Chu Lai.

Capt. Larron Murphy was my Tactical Officer in Infantry OCS.(I was an Officer Candidate and he was a Lieutenant at that time.) He was a great guy. I have read on the internet what happened to him in April 1970. I would like to find out more about what happened and if a recent detailed search has been made of his crash site. I would be interested in communicating with his friends from his unit, or others, in Viet Nam. I have some stories about Larron as a Tactical Officer in Infantry OCS. The bottom line is that he was the best. The guy was the personification of leadership. If you can give me a clearer picture of what happened to him, I would appreciate it.

Jerry, I can give you some insight on Murph's last mission,
it was late night about 11:30 or midnite, we got a scramble
for an emergency extraction of a Lerp team we had put in
earlier, they were pinned down, and surrounded according to
our radio contact, Bob Drury, was team lead with Murph flying his wing, I was the extraction bird, with the old man Paul
Stalker flying my cover. It was a terrible night for flying,
the weather was socked in, our initial attempt to the
location was to stay as low as possible flying out through
the valley south of LZ West, but the valley was totally
socked in, we came back out, got some altitude an made an
attempt to go out on top, we all some went IFR, we all went
to a black-out {shut off nav's and strobe's}and continued on
our mission calling out our heading and altitude constantly
to maintain seperation. I made the decision that I was not
going to take the risk of me and my crew of going down through the socked in mountains, not knowing exactly where we were to attempt the extraction, myself and Maj. Stalker
made 180's started aclimb and headed toward the south China Sea, Drury and Murph were going to try to get a radio fix on the Lerp team and give them some fire support, it seemed
like only seconds after we turned that Murph called out that
he was crashing, his voice was as a state of surprise, my
best guess was that he and Eads had flown into a mountian.
We, Blueghost searched for the daily with no luck. I do
understand that they were recently found, or at least the crash site, identified, and repatrioted . If I can be of more assistance to your effort please feel free to contact me. Bob Cornell "Ghost 35"

Bob,

Thank you for your account of what happened the night that Larron "Bucky" Murphy went down. I refer to him as Bucky because that's what his baby sister, my wife, still calls him. I would greatly appreciate any further information, stories, and especially any pictures (if you have any) of or about Bucky. Bucky is survived by his father - Rev. Lawrence Murphy, oldest brother - Wayne, younger sister - Sherri, younger brother - Kenneth, baby sister - Susan (my wife), and daughter - Kim. His mother passed away two years ago still believing that he may still be alive. Anything that you may have or can send is greatly appreciated. He is still sorely missed and greatly loved.

Tom,

I'm so glad that I found your posting. I am married to the baby sister of Larron "Bucky" Murphy. She still calls him Bucky. I would appreciate copies of any and all pictures that you may have of Bucky from "in-country". He is survived by his father - Rev. Lawrence Murphy, older brother - Wayne, younger sister - Sherri, younger brother - Kenneth, baby sister - Susan (my wife), and daughter - Kim. His mother passed away two years ago still believing that he may still be alive. He is still greatly missed and deeply loved. Thanks for anything that you can do.

Jerry,

I would like to thank you for showing such deep affection for Lt. Murphy. My wife still calls him "Bucky". She has called him that her whole life - he is her big brother. She was at home, sick from school, the day that the officers informed her mom and dad that Bucky was missing. The family still isn't over it. He is survived by his father - Rev. Lawrence Murphy, older brother - Wayne, younger sister - Sherri, younger brother - Kenneth, baby sister - Susan (my wife), and daughter - Kim. His mother passed away two years ago still believing that he may still be alive. If you have any stories, pictures, etc. to share, I'd really appreciate it if you could share them with us. He is still sorely missed and dearly loved by his family. Please respond and thanks for anything that you may do.

Dear Vet, Not sure why I picked this bulletin board but here goes. I am a 47 year old high school teacher who missed the war ,barely, because of age. Lived it as much as I had to via the newspaper and tv. Had a chance to make a small difference back in 1990 when I spearheaded a high school scholarship and war memorial for our lone small town Vietnam casualty. I am now involved in a large protestant church who recognizes that a long overdue thank you is due. We wish to write a play entitled, "Not Forgotten". The three of us who are writing this do not have the first hand knowledge of what you experienced and we want to be accurate and sensitive. We also want the perspective from the soldier who went to war as a man or woman of faith as well as you soldiers who profess(ed) no religious leaning. We really don't want this to be some milk-toast-come-to-Jesus play, though for us we realize that power,so we really need some honest input. Maybe some hard questions if your up to it:
Some of the hardest parts to deal with there, hardest thing to deal with once home , fond memories,things or people that made a difference, most vivid memory. Really, we want what YOU think we need to hear. Honest, heartfelt info is greatly appreciated. Would you tell us in your own way? (please don't worry about offending us we really want your honest take.) And by the way, in case it hasn't been said to you enough, Thank you for all you have done .Johnson.m@monet.k12.ca.us

The San Diego Reuinon was small but large in the comraderie and personal spirit that was enjoyed by all. It was a great event in every respect. We had 22-23 who showed up for roll call and that enabled all to get together for a better chance to get to know each other and renew memories, see photos and just enjoy each other. What a great time. thanks to "Doc" & Ernie and Barbara and all that put the effort in in arranging the facilities and communications. I rode my Harley down to SD and could not have had a better time. I sure missed all of you that couldn't make it. Thanks to those who did make it and we're looking forward to the next one. For those who didn't - we toasted you as we toasted the members who have preceded us to Fiddler's Green. Greetings to all.

I was a pilot with HHC 196th LIB flying all the places you guys flew at about the same time. We had just seven pilots (counting the Brigade Aviation Officer - who only flew occasionally and then only in the Brigade Commander's C & C ship), three UH1s and four OH23s. Obviously there were more than enough ships to go around. Everyone flew every day. There was little attention paid to hours and supposed mandatory down time.
Anyway, late one evening I found myself lifting off LZ Baldy after a very full, tiring day, facing a long flight home in a very slow old OH23. Our Ravens had no attitude indicators. Just air speed, RPM, oil, torque and temp. It was getting dark fast and it was real apparent that my visible horizon was going to disappear at any moment. When you are out in a 23 with no visible horizon you are in deep, deep sh--! Anyway, I was headed south for Chu Lai (Ky Ha) thinking I should turn around and just spend the night at Baldy when I spotted a bunch of BlueGhosts lifting off from the next LZ south of Baldy (Hawk Hill - I think). I contacted the flight and asked if they would mind letting me form up on them so that I could use their nav. lights to make an artificial horizon. They said sure. Only problem was you guys had LOHs and Cobras. With a max air speed of about 86 knots, I soon found it was impossible to keep up. I had to plead with them to slow up. These guys had had a long day and wanted to get back. They only reluctantly slowed down to what must have seemed to them to be an absolute crawl. As we flew south they kept getting a little faster and a little faster until I was just a vague memory. Luckily by the time they got so far out in front I could not use their lights anymore, we came up on Tam Ky, and I gained a usable ground lights horizon. I knew I should be able to get on in on my own. I advised them to go ahead and before I could say thanks - they had all pulled away like rockets.
For years it made a good story, talking about trying to make a 23 keep up with LOHs and Cobras while fearful of losing my horizon at any moment.
Enjoyed your site, see you at the VHPA reunion in July.

The registrations forms are flowing in everyday. As of Dec 27th, I have 35 already confirmed. Remember, to be elgibile for the three drawings, you must have your registration form postmarked NLT 1/31/01.

I trust the holidays have been good for everyone. Dennis had surgery on his back, Dan and Donna Delor were in up-state New York (probably snowed in) Richard is in Hawaii 'til the third week in January . . . on and on and on. If Jack Kennedy would send be an email message I'd appreciate it. I got back an undeliverable piece of mail from Arizona . . . think you're only 'ghost'out that way. It could have been the registration form. Let me know and I'll send another.
