Comment: I had my first ride to the bush with Bill when he was a peter pilot in Rattlers. One of the biggest thrills of my life was riding with the Firebirds. Thanks, Firebird 95, for the awesome rides and for introducing me to some of the most impressive individuals I have ever met. Everything good came on a chopper. Food, ammo, medicine, mail, and awesome firepower when I needed it most. So glad to have had you for a friend. Sorry you had to leave us.
