From a friend of the 129th AHC,
It's been over 30 years since we had the last flight together as a crew. Not a day goes by that I don't think of that day in the An Khe Pass.
Anyway - Happy Birthday from the surviving crew members of the "426"
I'll always remember you, Lt Tom Shaw, and Bruno Sanchez.

I just found this website in the past week thanks to contact with friends of the 129th A.H.C.
Although it has been 31 years since he died at An Khe, his family and I think of Claud every day and remember his passion for flying, his patriotism, and his pride in what he was doing.
We will continue to miss him and keep his memory alive with the new generations to come.

April 27, 2004, 32 years ago today you lost your life in Vietnam. I am grateful to Bernie and Bruno for filling some of the blanks, just one year ago when I found the 129th website. You have been gone longer than you were here. Your friends, family, and Army colleagues continue to miss you and think of you every day. You made a difference in our lives with your kindness and wit, as well as how you could fill a room with your energy. In the last year, your brother has published a very successful book with many wonderful anecodotes of his childhood and you were in most of them. I laughed aloud at some of them. You would be proud of his success. We miss you and remember you. Diane
