Remarks:  Some of my most memorable moments in VN occurred when WO Dave Holloway would allow me to fly the ship home after a mission.  Eventually, when Dave gave Doug Gooch his check ride to become an AC he jokingly told Doug that he would qualify him if he could fly as well as his crew chief.  I look forward to seeing both at the re-union.

Note from the web master:  Although not mentioned in his bio Sp-5 Ralph "Sandy" Noyes was awarded the DFC for his actions as a Mustang crew chief.  He is one of a very few enlisted air crew to receive this special award for heroism.
