"I've Laid Around And Played Around Vietnam Too Long"
If anyone has any information
about the men in this 281st AHC singing group
performing their song
(see sound file links below) in a January 1967 Song Contest at 17th CAG,
please let us know and contact Marty Heuer below.
What we don't
know is who: name, rank, instrument played, etc., for this group of
singers. They may
have been enlisted men or officer-pilots. Can you help?
Thanks and best regards,
LTC, USA, (Retired)
174th AHC, 14th CAB
