“All my peers have gotten out”

Ya think? I guess that’s what happens when you stay in the Army for 43 years!

When Chief Warrant Officer Herb Dargue joined the Army as a helicopter pilot, the Beatles’ “Penny Lane” topped the charts, the UH-1C Huey was the hottest “chopper” flying, and actor William Shatner was “Star Trek’s” Captain Kirk on prime time TV.

  1. REminds me of Mike Novosel who won the CMH in ‘nam. Started as an AAF instructor, then flew B-29s, and again in Korea. The Af turned him down in 1964 (he was a Reserve LTC at the time),so he went into Army Aviation, then retired, finally, in 1986, I think. Certainly all his peers were out, and a good many were dead when he retired.
