I was a crew cheif in HMM-364 fron July 68 to Feb.21, 1969.  The medevac aircraft that crashed on 2/7/69 was my aircraft.  I  had turned it over to my first mechanic,  Cpl. Charles W. "Chuck" Miller the day before the crash because I was returning home on 2/21/69.  Chuck Miller was my best friend.  I was also on the recovery team that went out and recovered the bodies.  I was carrying the PRC-25 radio.

Chuck and I also flew the Bob Hope Show ,we had the 12 Golddiggers, around for four days with Lcpl. George W. Dabrowski.
