My presentation will be a short discussion about why I made a movie about a battle that occurred in the Mekong Delta near Vinh Long, Vietnam on Easter Sunday, March 26, 1967. The movie, entitled AN OLD FRIEND, is approximately 40 minutes long and it will put you in the cockpit of the legendary Huey during the epic battle that occurred on that very memorable day.

BIO: I was raised in Littlefield, Texas and served in the U.S. Army as a helicopter pilot from 1965 - 1969. I served one year in Vietnam with the 175th Aviation Helicopter Company as a gunship pilot before being stationed at Fort Wolters, Texas for 2 years as an instructor pilot. I was discharged from military in 1969 and worked 4 years for PHI in Lafayette, Louisiana as pilot for offshore oil operations in Gulf of Mexico. I joined Bell Helicopter International in 1973 and lived in Esfahan, Iran for 4 years where I was Chief Pilot of Advanced Flight Training for the Imperial Iranian Army Aviation Training Command (IIAATC). I transferred to Bell Helicopter in Fort Worth, Texas in 1979 and retired as Chief Pilot in 2005. Since then I've worked for several companies but now work primarily for Aerodynamix, Inc. for certification of NVG compatible cockpits. Some highlights in my career include flying the XV-15 (experimental tilt rotor); working on V-22 project; conducting aerobatics in Bell 222/680; conducting flight in BA 609 commercial tilt rotor; and awarded the FAA's Wright Brother's Master Aviator Award recognizing 50 years in aviation with no accidents in 2015. I currently live in Arlington, Texas with my wife of 53 years!
