In 2004, the makers of ITSOTB, will be going on the road to various
cities with their film. Schedules will be posted on this website as that
information becomes available. Albuquerque is just the first of many
showings for 2004 before this film is put on cable TV and eventually on DVD
and VCR for private showings.
There will be a mini-Vietnam book fair in Albuquerque during the film's
showing there. Vietnam related books will be available in various locations
of which will be announced prior to the event.
128th Assault Helicopter Company Reunion
Plans are unfolding for a 128th reunion in conjunction with the Vietnam
Helicopter Pilots Association reunion scheduled for Dallas, Texas July 1
to 5, 2004. The reunion will be held at the Adams Mark Hotel. Preliminary
info for the VHPA reunion has been posted at
I contacted VHPA HQ today and they said that it is too early to schedule
unit mini-reunions. I should be able to do that in early January. In
looking at the schedule it appears that a good time would be the afternoon
of Saturday, July 3rd.
I will attempt to have adjacent tables assigned to the 128th for the final
banquet which is usually the highlight of the VHPA reunion.
The hotel is NOT accepting reunion reservations yet and registration for
the reunion with VHPA HQ has NOT been opened as yet. I will keep you
informed. I just wanted to provide advance info so you can make your
summer plans now. Bill McDonald, 128th web master extraordinaire, will be
posting updated reunion info as it develops. I will be providing info on
how 128th members other than pilots/VHPA members may register and attend.
For those who have not made a reunion, I advise, this is a family event.
Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!

REUNION PLANS BEGUN FOR RENO February 2005 - 128th AHC & 173rd
have now begun for bringing the Tomahawks and the Robin Hoods
together for a mini-reunion in Reno, Nevada in February 2005. Holding it
at this time of year should bring opportunities for members and their
families to take advantage of the great skiing in the area that time of
the season. We will be posting information as to the exact dates and hotel
information before this summer. We wanted everyone to have a heads up for
their personal planning - so keep the first part of February open.
Anyone wishing to help with the planning please contact me. Bill McDonald
