Mr Crabtree
Something doesnt quite sound right here,
the 101st Airborne was a US Army division and the only aircraft they flew were helos ( hueys, ferry the grunts around)
Now, how the hell can you fly F4's for the 101st when the only people flying them in nam were the US Navy and US Air Force?

Me thinks you are lying!

Dear Mr Crabman,

When I was there the 101st were an airborne infantry unit that did not operate any aircraft, let alone an F4!

And further more it is only Hollywood that calls it "Nam"

It's a wind up. Have a look at his profile. Probably does need to see a shrink though if this is his idea of humour.
