HMM-265 Crew Chiefs
photo was in front of 265 ready room at Phu Bai 1967. Doug Delude on left. Was told he was only marine to be awarded silver stars on two consecutive days.
Guy in middle 2nd from left is Richard Evans from Macon Ga. On his first in country extension in 1968 Richard was wounded in the leg flying a test hop with Gunner Poe. He ended losing the leg due infections from the surgeries at atlanta va in 1970. Never met Doug but Richard showed me the photo in 1967 and told me about Doug.
I was there with the unit at that time. I'm pretty sure its Dan Delude rather than Doug. He was the Crew Chief I trained under as a Gunner before becoming a Crew Chief. -Submitted by: Don Schultz [DoSchultz@mac.com] 2007-10-03
