THE MISSION

Tom Fike was the last Green Hornet lost. If I remember right it was in Dec 71. It was his last mission before rotating home (it was to be a milk run out of Saigon and back). His crew was shot down as they were returning to Saigon. The pilot thought that they had seen a rocket launcher set up in a rice paddy. They went in low level to check it out (flying a UH-1N slick), and a bad guy popped up and racked the bottom of the chopper. Tom Fike was killed, the other gunner (King) was seriously wounded and at least one of the pilots was wounded in the leg.
