             Leland R Arend writes: "This bird had a blade strike on the fuselage at Qui Nhon right after we came off the USNS Boxer. Needless to say it was turned into supply. The bird was slung into An Khe by a CH-54. When the robbing stopped and the decision was made to get the bird back into the air over 150 parts had been removed. Sp6 Johnie Wright and myself put her back together in a month or so (15th TC helped). The 1st month after being put back together we logged 105 hrs. The MO Cpt Renick gave us a 3 day pass to Saigon for getting her back into air and flying so many hours right out of the gate."
