Light Observation Helicopter (LOH) 2nd Brigade, 4th ID 1966 in Pleiku. "Tried these fixed guns on the skids. Kept jamming. Went to door gunners with M-60's. This was at Brigade HQ south of Pleiku. Area would be later named Camp Enari. Lt Mark Enari and I shared a stateroom on the boat from Tacoma to Qui Nhon. He was one of the first 4th ID soldiers killed in Vietnam." -Milt Brown.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial - Angel Fire, NM. "I took this picture in 2010 while in Angel Fire for a family reunion. Came out pretty good, if I do say so myself." -Milt Brown. Photo by Milt Brown. Aaron Brown remarks: "I had never heard of the monument. It's tremendous." Gary L. O'Neal comments: "Didn't know it was out there either. The sound of a Huey is different from any sounds you will ever hear. That bird took us into battle and out of harms way. That sound I will never forget and the men that flu them. God bless all the men that fought in that war and the ladies that helped keep us alive. The nurse's and the Red Cross ladies as we call Donut Dollie's. The most intense war in history."
