Looking for Co-pilot and or crew memberAugust 14, 2012 @ 12:35pm
I am looking for Co-pilot and/or crew member for recovery mission on or about 2/7/1968 (SSG Lionel Butler) or 2/8/1969 (SGT George Canamare). My guess is that it was probably SGT Canamare because the casualty detail was an explosive device. I flew H model to recover a blue who was killed on the mission. While putting body on aircraft, body was in pieces and separated while being placed in helicopter. Not trying to bring back memories, but would like to get more information from anyone who remembers mission.

Update 12/30/2013

Thanks, George "Muff" Handley

Just read your post. You must have picked up a Blue from another unit -- there were no unit fatalities in Feb 68. However, 8 Feb '69 Sgt. Canamore was killed.
