COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Bill Cunningham | Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 263 (HMM 263)

4:11   |   Bill Cunningham made sure every pilot in the squadron rotated in the search and rescue missions because they were the most dangerous and he wanted to spread out the risk. The Marine aircraft were accompanied by gunships for security and he always seemed to be paired with the same gunship pilot, call sign Hostage Jack.
