    Brent; yesterday you gave my wife Emma, and other Blue Star Mom’s a ride in the Huey from the Gold Star Mom’s golf tournament in Pleasanton back to Concord. This was a thrill of a lifetime for her and very therapeutic as she buried her best friend last weekend. She was like a kid just coming off her first roller coaster ride. That’s all she could talk about last night. Thanks for doing that and your volunteer work with the Vets. She was showing me the pictures and I said “I know the pilot, he was at Don Johnson’s retirement luncheon on Wed” small world. I had no idea that you did this. Thanks again, Clark Luntey #7601 Ret

    This is your cousin Jason. I can’t believe you are in Vietnam! I have been here off and on for 6 years. I am here now with my wife Sang and our son Orion. My wife is Vietnamese and my son was born here. We are leaving for the states in a few days for thanksgiving. If you are still in Saigon then we should get together! We have a house and office in the Go Vap district. The funny thing is we just moved from district 1 on Pasteur street right next to the helicopter museum. I lived there for the past 4 years and you were just around the corner. My local number is 098 220-3000 . Call me if you are still in town. I would love to see you and show you around. If you are in the states then call me on or after thanksgiving. My US number is 530-264-6222

      Looks like I jumped the gun and your not in Vietnam. I should have read the website first but when I saw Vietnam helicopter museum I assumed it was the one in Saigon. I would love to catch up with you in the states. Let’s get in touch! We fly into Sacramento on thanksgiving, hope to see you soon.

    • Hey Jason, thank you very much for contacting me, sorry for the delayed response. I’ll give you a call this weekend.
      Take care, talk to you soon.
