This aircraft made an emergency landing at Artillery Hill, Pleiku.  The rotor blades were full of holes after it flew over a "spider hole".

Let us not forget "B" Company Mascot Bridgett


Bridgett was as good a dog as I've ever been around. 
I was at Camp Enari, the 4th Division Base camp, and was assigned to B Co, 4th Aviation Battalion. 
Bridgett would roam the company area and would also show up at the Flight Line.. When we would head to the line for primary duty she would walk with us, never needed a lease for her. 
She was well behaved to everyone except the Vietnamese civilian workers, she would bark and run at them just to chase them.  She never bit anyone that I know of. 
October of 1967 a Sgt., from another company, thought she bit one of his men and he shot at her.  She received it through on one of her hind legs with no bone damage.  The Sgt. was busted to private for the incident.  
She would greet us when we returned to the company area after a mission.  Sometimes she would be at the flight line when we returned and she would run to the chopper and jump in for a head rub. 
I'm sorry I don't remember where each of her pups went, but I do know they went to be mascots for other companies at the camp. 
I also don't know what ever happened to her after I left Vietnam.  I'm sure she was well taken care of cause everyone loved her. 
She was a bit of sunshine in a place we didn't want to be.  Maybe some other members of B Co remember her and what may have become of Bridgett.
