well heres the story of how he won the DFC(short version anyway!),seem while he was flying a mission a copper and its crew got shot down,he layed surpressing fire (he was cobra pilot)on the area against the VC and then still while under fire landed and rescued the crew! i think bill told me he will get me copys of the cititions them selfs! so i cant wait to see and read them! all from a name tag on a uniform!! and a big up to bill for doing that bit extra!
