Hi Boys,,,,,,,,,

The log of Ed "Spooky" Nored. Date 11/21/69
Log Bird Black Bandit "501"

A'Co. 229th Avn Bn, TayNinh

I was the A/C commander of "501" from Sept 69 until Jun 70. Crew Chief Richard Dike, Door Gunner Rodriquez
CW2 James L. Wilson then WO1 A/C. My call sign was Black Bandit 27.
Today is April 15, 2013. April 15, 1970 I flew Flare bird and medivac on FB Atkinson all night when it was over run. Looking for history on the Unit which was at FB Atkinson when this happened.

WO1 Bill Weaver was shot down and landed on the wire during the battle , WO1 John Pohlman was killed. John was the co-pilot.

There are some really moving stories here, I have served my country in the British Army and have been treated well after my service. It has taken a long time for Vietnam Vets to be recognised and appreciated. Good Luck to you all God Bless

I served with B co 1st Bn. 12th Cav Dec 68 till Dec 69. We most likley saw some of the same ground as you did a year later? Did so much enjoy your site. I had almost forgot about some of the C-rations and a few other of the things I read on your site. Thanks for bring back some good memories. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this site. It helps to tell our story to the future genrations of Americans who may only see or read about it in some school book.

I was led to this site by Arlyn Perkey. I admire the bravery of all you veterans. The pictures and history will become all the more valuable as years go by. Thank you all for saving it.

I ran across your site and found it interesting. When I returned from Germany in 1964, I was assigned to the 2nd ID at Fort Benning, GA. We under went Air Assault training with the 11th Air Assault Div. Just before the two were combined into the 1st Cav Div, I was transferred to Atlanta. My unit there, went to Vietnam with the 1st Cav in 1965, and I was back with D/2/5 1st Cav within 3 months. I cannot remember ever taking any of the gear you show into the field because we had copter resupply. Later I went over to the LRP company, and still did not use any of it. If you guys did, I feel sorry for you because carrying all that in 120 degree days would worse than going toe to toe with the bad guys. Still, this is a great site.
