Message I wonder if anyone else remembers an incident that dates to the very

earliest Vietnam days, about this date in 1966.<br>A day or two before the

Darby was to land at Vung Tau, one of the 196th troopers developed acute

appendicitis and the decision was made to evacuate him instead of

waiting.<br>In windy and rainy weather and with a sizable swell running, he

was brought to the fantail strapped to a litter. <br>Out of the dark, a barely

visible but easily heard helicopter appeared.<br>Whoops, to be cont.
