The Evening I Met Don Lash, HU-4 Social Director

Did I tell you the day I met my long time friend Don Lash?   Don felt he was the self appointed squadron's social director.  It was the day after Labor Day, in 1963.  It was my first day in Helicopter Utility Squadron four (HU-4).  It started at the E.M. Club.  He could tell I was awkwardly new and shy.  He bought me a beer.  Several beers later we decided to visit the helo area and see if we could fly a "horse" helicopter.  Pictured is a "Horse" The rest of the story is long and uneventful.
