Blood in the back seat
While stationed in BAO LOC, Vietnam I performed the following duties. These duties should have been performed by a helicopter, but there was not helicopter available, so I made the flight. Both of these Vietnamese people would have died. We took out the top of the back seat and then laided the Arvin soldier in the back seat over the radios. We hooked him up with an intervenious solution. We put the intervenious pouch and hung it from the hook on the seat belt hook. I flew this Arvin soldier to Bao Loc hospital. We had a Navy Doctor in a MILFAB unit in Bao Loc. The soldier lived.
1- Wounded Vietnam soldier. This man was in a special forces camp called Tan Rai. Bao Loc had a Navy doctor. He was the only person that could save his life. I made the mercy flight, altho my airplane was not made to do such a flight.
2- Pregnant Woman. This women was from a village that had no doctor. I picked her in a place called Gia Neigha. She was having a breech birth and was going to die. I made the mercy flight to Bao Loc to see the MILFAB NAVY Doctor. I do not know if she lived.
