First Cav LRRPs
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:
To identify (some of) these guys, click in the photos for
a larger image.  I don't have the ID of some of them.
Honorary LRRP ---
What an honor!
