While attending the LRRP luncheon at
the 2008 1st Cav Association reunion in
Jacksonville, I was surprised with this
plaque. It's an honor beyond description.
I have reserved a special page for some special folks. I supported the 1st Cav LRRP
Company off and on for quite a while in '67. I was involved when the company was
formed, and flew their first missions. I have always felt a sort of "kinship" with those
remarkable guys. Over the past few years, I have been reunited with some of them
through the internet, and subsequently at reunions. A lot of memories emerged, and a
lot of emails were exchanged. I had very few photos of my own depicting LRRPS, but
have received some from a few of the LRRPS, themselves. Many thanks to Geoff
Koper and Bill Carpenter for most of the photos you see below:
