Comment: Mike was my mentor in Vietnam. He trained me to take over second paltoon when he went to operations in 1970. It was Mike's skill that allowed all of the crew members of "497" to survive when we were shot down in Heip Duc valley on May 17, 1970. "Mike, I'll tip one for you at the next reunion".
