I’ve been wanting to do this photo for a very long time. It’s a tribute to the men who flew them in and around Soc Trang, Vietnam. This photo has been photoshopped to look like the Huey’s that I worked on in Vietnam. The background has been changed. It took me awhile to locate and duplicate the decals for the Helicopter. The call sign for the troop-carrying helicopters “Slicks” was the Tigers. There were two platoons of Tigers. There were the blue Tigers and the white Tigers. There was one platoon of “Gun Ships” called the Vikings. Looking back, I’m very proud that I got to work on the communication equipment, “Avionics” on these Helicopters in Vietnam.

Continental Trailways Silver Eagle Bus 13542

This is a completely restored Continental Trailways Bus used by the Central Division of Trailways. I drove this bus and other just like it when I was driving for Trailways. I had a great time driving for Trailways the 9 years I drove for Central Division out of Kansas City, Mo. Because of Trailways I got to see a lot of this great country when I drove charters for various groups. I have so many great memories of driving for Trailways. These Buses provide the passengers with a great ride and they were great to drive.
