I sadly report that we lost another Brother September 12, 2021. Timothy "Tim" Rondeau (67 armament/gunner) passed away and is now with a select group of Black Cats and Alley Cats. Please keep his family in your prayers.
I just spoke with Christal Skulborstad. The reason she has not contacted anyone about "Skully" is due to a loss of phone and computer connections. I have her phone nuber if anyone would like to contact her. A celebration of life is being held at the Porter, Texas VFW tomorrow August 7, 2021 at 2 pm. Mark will be laid to rest in the Ft. Logan Cemetery in Denver,CO. August 23, 2021 at 1:30pm. His obituary can be found on Kingwood Funeral Home Kingwood, Texas website.

I am trying to get any info on my late father in law, whom i never had the opportunity to meet. His name was Allen W Hart (SPC 5). The only info I have regarding his service in Vietnam is that he was there 68-70 and assigned to ”282nd”. This could also be 2/82nd but I am not sure. He was from Kansas and died from Agent Orange related cancer in the 90’s. His MOS involved being part of US Army Aviation.
if anyone knows this name, please message.

This Memorial Day as you are enjoying good food and drinks with family and friends please take time and remember our 24 Brothers of the 282nd Assault Helicopter Company who gave their all for our country. Their families are missing their loved ones every day and especially on this day. We served with these great men and words can't express how thankful we are for their service and sacrifice to our country. Young men may you rest in eternal peace.
Wishing everyone the best in these troubled times.
Looking through some of dad's old photos last night
