Hello there Leathernecks!
In April of 1969, I think it was the 9th, a Jolly Green Giant crashed into the ammo dump at LZ Vandergriff, setting the entire dump on fire. Two Soldiers ran into the burning ammo dump and pulled the 5 crew members out, one at a time and took them out to safety and medical attention. I heard that all five of the crew members lived. I have always wondered what happened to those five men. This is important to me because I was one of those two soldiers that kicked in the windshield and drug them out of the flaming wreckage.
Any information you could give me on this and the possible whereabouts of the crew members or a way of contacting them would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and Semper Fi !
