Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

Jason Rhodes' son Frank has been missing in action in Vietnam for ten years.

Later, two captured Hueys are re-appropriated by Rhodes' team from a Laotian air force outpost and used in the raid against the P.O.W. camp. Rhodes flies one. Johnson flies the other. Rhodes' is hit and crashlands, while Johnson's is used to evacuate the surviving soldiers.
