Hello, my dad was with the 282nd Assault Helicopter Co 12th battalon. His name was Gene Wildenradt. He served 1967-1968. He passed away in 1988. I am just wondering if anyone knew him? I would love to hear from someone who did. Thanks so much!
I am here on behalf of my husband Chuck Palmer who was a door gunner at Marble Mountain during 1969-1970. He lost touch with the guys in the unit and has recently, because of videos he has seen on YouTube, become interested in finding them again, or at least those that he can.

Sorry to report that John Adam Kemp, son of Ann Sizemore and step-son of Mike Sizemore passed away June 20, 2018. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ann and Mike. May John rest in peace. Also Malcolm Bussey, Alley Cat pilot 69-70, passed away May 2018. May you rest in peace Brother.
My dad, WO2 John (Mike) Reese was with not only the 334th AWC, but also the Black Cats from 67-68. My dad took his life in 1971, when I was 2 years old. We lost too many that way. I did not know his family, and mine did not talk about him much. I have reached out a few times over the years in search of those who may have served with him. I am hoping I will have luck here! I would love to see any photos that may be out there (I only have about a dozen pictures of him) and maybe hear a story or two. I live near Indianapolis and am planning on attending the 2019 reunion. Thank you.
Robert, if you would give me a way to let the members of the 282nd a way to contact you, I will post it on our face book page and post your information in our next news letter. My email my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My father Robert J Collins served as a door gunner with the Black Cats from 71 - 72. I was wondering if any one remembers him and if they could share some stories with me. Unfortunately he passed away October 21 2017 from cancer that the VA believes was caused by agent orange. I'm a vet myself and it would mean a lot to me to hear back from someone. I have pictures he took and his Black Cat patch
