Remarks: The 68th AHC was one of the best because of us. Our records still stand strong today and will forever. Just being a part of that was amazing in itself, but being a "Mustang" was the bonus! To all my old friends I can still see your faces we were so young and crazy weren't we. I'm looking for one of my pilot's, his nickname was "Woody" does anybody remember his full name (maybe Mr. Woodruff) and what happened to him? He's the one responsible for having me paint "HO CHI SUCKS" on the bottom of our ship. Time to catch up its been 45 years, and there's alot to talk about.
