I enjoyed your site. Your comments on Vietnam today were heartfelt and thought provoking. I was with 3/4 Cav, 1st Plt, A Troop, 66 – 67. You have returned. I wish to some day.
My father was Jerry David Denny, Captain, USAA. I know nothing about his service, my mother will not talk about it. He died Jan 31 in the Tay Ninh province and was a member of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division. Any information is welcome. Capt Eric Denny, USAF

I’m a hopeless romantic about Tripacers and enjoyed your web page very much. I hope to join the happy ranks of Tripacer owners soon and I’m always checking out info about this beauty. I just received my private pilot ticket last July and have always dreamed of owning a Tripacer. My flight instructor and 2 mechanics at the airport where I fly out of have all good things to say about this airplane. Feel free to send me any info regarding this airplane. Thanks for sharing your passion with the rest of us! Sincerely, Joe Snow, 2802 Northland Drive, Eau Claire, WI 54703 (715)834-8479

Today is 11 Nov 99. I was with the 1st Bn 8th Fld Arty HHB from 69-70. Would enjoy hearing from anyone that was there during that era. The early out program that you discuss in a paper was a bad deal in hindsight. We should of come home to a military base in the US in order to get our feet back on the ground.
When young I had a 1953 tripacer that I flew a lot. N3403A I got married and got rid of the tripacer. The tripacer is what I sould have kept…… Have fun.
Those guys serving there must have been real brave. I am their great fan. I would really like to meet some of them to hear(or to read) the story from first hand. Luka Kumer ,Slovenia(x – Yugoslavia)
