The database page for Michael Joseph Conrady
"Doc" Conrady was assigned to A Company 2/14 Infantry as our medic when he was killed in action. Mike and four others were killed in the same incident when two "ten ship" lifts of choppers inserted them into a hot Landing Zone. He is listed as "Noncrew Air Loss" because he never made it off the chopper.
Mike was on the "outside" of the chopper formation, the side we normally exited the ships. As he started to get off, he saw a machine gun directly in front of them, so he turned and was pushing the rest of those on the ship out the "inside" of the formation when he was shot.
Those of us waiting to be picked up by the returning choppers only heard what had happened.
