STALLION 67-17338
Stallion 338 served with the 92nd Assault Heicopter Company from July 1968 until January 1969.  During those 6 months, it flew 539 hours with the unit.  Chapter 828, Vietnam Veterans of America acquired the aircraft in 2002 and members have been diligently restoring it to prime condition.  338 was mounted in it's final resting place in Barnwell, SC on May 17, 2003.  A formal dedication ceremony was conducted on Memorial Day 2005.
The following photos were provided by Chapter 828 members, Ed and Sally Knight of Aiken, SC.

Looking good for an old guy!
One of our own still serving!  Jimmy Pierce was a Sidekick door gunner and then crew chief from May 1969 to May 1970.  Thank you for your long and faithful service!     Sadly, Jimmy suffered a fatal heart attack less than one month before our 2011 reunion.  He had planned to attend and bring his son to meet his fellow members.
The Dedication Ceremony took place May 28, 2005.  Here are the details:
