Visitor Comments: Had the privilege of supporting LS85 while flying the Pilatus Porter for Continental Air Services, Inc. from '66 until it fell. They were a great bunch of guys, their demise is a sad reminder of many things that went wrong in Laos.

Visitor Comments: Where do I begin. I served in the U.S. Army (active duty) from November 1983 until June of 1989. In 1988, I was deployed to Panama in support of Operation Just Cause. Prior to my departure, I purchased a POW/MIA wrist band, which was engraved with TSGT Springsteadah's name. I wore the wrist band until June of 1989, which is when I separated from service. I tried to conduct research on TSGT Springsteadah, but all I learned was that he was from Millville, New Jersey. Keep in mind that this was before the internet came about. Being from New Jersey myself, I tried to find out what I could about TSGT Springsteadah, while respecting his family's privacy. Today I came across the virtual wall site and looked up TSGT Springsteadah. Again, there was very little information. After a couple of Google searches, I came across Ann Holland's website. After twenty plus years, I have finally learned of TSGT Springsteadah's, as well as his comrades', fate. I still have my wrist band. It sits by my bed and I look at it often. I cannot help but to feel a deep sense of connection with TSGT Springsteadah. I hope to find a picture of him and to learn as much as I can about this senseless loss. Thank you for such a wonderful site and all of the links provided.

God Bless!

Visitor Comments: Amazing stories told with writing as well as photo. As a child born during this time ('68) and heard of the horror, I am torn apart. Hope we learn something from our past and progress toward a less destructive future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Excerpt
from Hillclimbers in Laos
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A couple of days later, the second mission began. We were to move a D-4 bulldozer externally which weighed in the neighborhood of 11,600 lbs. We proceeded to a small airstrip in the vicinity of "The Rock", Landing Site 85, which was close to the North Vietnam border.
