What's the difference between a fairy tale and a war story?  A fairy tale begins with "Once upon a time..." and a war story begins with "No shit--this really happened..."

These war stories are all true.  Most of the details are from letters I wrote in 1970 and 1971 when I was a C-130 pilot flying passengers, cargo and fuel to airfields around Vietnam.  These are my personal experiences, not a comprehensive history.  Please feel free to drop me an email
