The photo shows Freddie (bare feet) and another WOC being thrown into the swimming pool at Fort Wolters, Texas in the traditional dunking on the day they soloed in helicopters: early May, 1968. Freddie and I were close friends while we went to boot camp together at Fort Polk then Army helicopter flight school at Fort Wolters and Fort Rucker.
