Tiger Shark Pilots - Mid-Summer 1969
A few Tiger Shark pilots pose in front of the gun platoon "hooch"
break from combat operations. Those enjoying "Miller Time" were probably
not standing primary or secondary alert on this particular day. Back row
(left to right): WO1 Darell Koenig, 1LT Rich Zurawick (Zip), WO1 John
Biddar (Mad John), WO1 Terry Custer (General). Front row (left to
right)WO1 Don Hancock (Lizard, Died 2/13/2004), WO1 Greg Morrison(Froggie), and
1LT Tom Campbell (Okie).
Tom was lost on 28 October 1969, along with the rest of his crew, while
covering an extraction of C Company, 75th Rangers. His valiant sacrifice
will never be forgotten by his comrades in arms.
