Did you ever find an SPH-4 flight helmet? They are all over eBay if you are still looking.

Wayde,
Welcome aboard. I posted a picture of your crew in photos under "Gameboy Gale". I remember you well. You had a shaved head.

Wayde,

I remember you guys coming over from HHT. My crew had one of the gunners too. I do not remember his name, but I do remember that he was a PFC.

Toujours Pret Wayde,
Welcome to the DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of updated features, lots of sub-groups,(ie, Officers Club, F-Trp., Amberg, Medics, etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history, and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures (pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country.
