I was a gun shop crew chief back at that time doing maintenance on the Vulcan 20mm cannon for the 105's and would like to find some of the guys I worked with in the shop at that time. My co-crew chief had the last name of Wilson. the rest of the guys I don't remember their names.
At that time I was working a lot on night shift and the day shift guys didn't like to see me come in because I would inspect the safety wiring on the guns from the day shift and if I found they hadn't been done right, I would clip them off and make them do it all over. To get their attention when I came into the shop, I's sneak up behind some of these young guys who didn't know what they were doing and slam a mallot on the work bench that got their attention pretty quick. I'm sure they were all glad when I rotated home to the states.
Anyway, if anyone remembers those days, let me know...............Cliff
