Comment: CWO Pat Gwaltney, was a fearless, gunship pilot, we flew on many missions together, we were shot down on three different occasions, I was his crew chief, on many missions. one time he came to my hooch, wanted someone, to ride left seat, for him, once in air, he said we were going to put out a fire, in a mine field, again we got the job done. CWO Pat was one heck of a Man, and pilot. Till we meet again, your crew chief.
