#25 I am looking for information about an Marine "Eagle Claw" gunship that was shot down while flying in support of an insertion in Laos (MAC/SOG) CCN in 1970. All of the crew except for one were KIA, and the other member was able to E&E for 17 days before his recovery.

#3 looking for information to help an elderly marine veteran friend of mine. He's interested in getting information about a marine helicopter crash that occurred in January of 1977 in Hilo, Hawaii.
