Southeast Asia
During 1966 a total of 214 Kaman Scrolls of Honor were awarded to HH-43 pilots and crewmen serving in Southeast Asia. All of the rescue flights were carried out under hazardous con¬ditions involving either enemy fire, poor weather, limited visibility, rugged terrain or various combinations of these factors. The following are only a few of the missions for which Scrolls were awarded.

“After flying through heavy cloud formations and dodging numerous thunderstorms, an HH-43 crew from Det 5, 38th ARRSq, hovered over the burning wreckage of a downed aircraft and Alc Vincent P. Rogalio, rescue specialist, was lowered 100 feet into the dense jungle.
Finding no one, a search was initiated for survivors and they were rescued after a landing was made in an extremely confined area. 1stLt Ralph E. Vick was pilot of the HUSKIE and 1stLt Kenneth G. Griffis, copilot.
Others in the crew were TSgt Reginald W. Willis, rescue specialist, and Alc Andrew C. Paparella, flight mechanic.”
