I was at Budop Aug 68-March 70.

Apparently a lot of the Cambodian incursion was launched from there just after I left.

I recall a chopper outfit with the callsign "Top Tiger" that worked our AO for a long time.

Don't recall just what they did.
We got a "work chopper" once a week and others who would drop ih for whatever reason, but I have forgotten who did what.
There were Caribous with "Tong" names and 130s with "Bookie" designators.
"Blue Max was cobras frrom the 17th ARA. They had a Pour Le Merit painted on their transmission housing.
I got a chunk of rocket in one lung courtesy one of them.
A month later I was back 0n site.
