Well, here I am, Dave Richardson, back with video number 2 (The Rescue of Candlestick 01) as promised.

If you viewed Part 1 of this trilogy, you are somewhat familiar with the Jolly Green mission in Vietnam and know that 2 of my 7 rescues were filmed by a combat cameraman.

As you will note while watching this video, the rescue was complicated by weather, poor survivor location and heavy ground fire. Obviously, we were able to overcome all these obstacles, or you wouldn't be reading this.

Assembling the photos and narrating the sequence brought back a lot of memories.

My book, Vietnam Air Rescues, has received favorable attention. For those who are interested, more photos, these videos, and information about the book, may be found on the website,
