West Sacramento Veterans Day Parade - 2011








Ken Fritz, Greg Hutson and Frank Frank Kulhavy spent more than 10 hours
prepping, priming and painting the trailer with epoxy primer and industrial top coat, in Aug 2011

The freshly painted trailer and remounted Huey look good, don't they? Jim
Clark, and Ken and Greg and Frank and many others helped complete the
trailer. Our first trailer was too flimsy and used a conventional ball
hitch. This trailer is better balanced, has good brakes and all LED tail and
running lights.  Just in time for the Veterans day parade!

NVA Visit the MOC - October 2011











I
n October of 2011, Jack Swickard (left), VHPA life member and past editor of the Aviator, visited Ken Fritz in
Sacramento with their friend Dinh Ngoc Truc. Jack and Ken spent a month touring Vietnam with Truc previously. Truc
served in the Peoples Army as one of five crewmen on a 37mm anti-aircraft gun. Although he and his crew did finally
manage to get south near Saigon and Nha Trang, they never saw any US forces. Truc was too young and too late into
the war. To his great delight, he visited the MOC and the Huey and learned a lot about US helicopter operations in
Vietnam during the time before he ever joined his army. Now he works in Hanoi as the International Press and
Communications Coordinator in the Ministry of Information and Communications.
