I was, an enlisted, Flight Engineer, stationed, with Lt., Bonnell, in Det., 9, 38th, Air Rescue & Recovery Squadron, at Pleiku, Air Base, Vietnam. Although, I was an enlisted, man and 10, years older, than "Spike," I considered him, a friend and was shocked, when he & his crew, were shot down, while rescuing wounded, Army troops, west, of Pleiku. Due, to his pilot, skills and personality, he was well, liked and respected, by all of us, in the Detachment.

Spike and I were Worthignton High School varsity basketball teammates. He was a great student, player and was the first sophomore to be on the school's starting five. He went on to the Air Force Academy were he excelled in water polo. Three months after Spike's death, as I was flying over the same area as he did, I remembered his sacrific and the sacrifices of all the other servicemen who make our country great. Thank you Spike, you will always be remembered and honored.
