315th AviationSupport Detachment, Bear Cat, RVN

NOT for Sale - Pocket Hanger belongs to a Veteran who served at Bear Cat circa June 1968 - April 1970


You can contact Gene ( Bear Cat Tower name "Running Bear”) at Eugene.hansen@gmail dot com

Short summary of his experience at the 315th ASD
"The 315th Aviation Support Detachment was located at Camp Bear Cat, RVN, which was approximately 7 miles East of Long Binh and 16 miles north of Saigon. It was adjacent to Long Thanh North. I read somewhere that prior to our arrival the tower was manned by American civilian contractors. I had thought they were regular Army. Command transitioned to the Army on the 8th of August 1968.
We arrived on 28 June, 1968 and worked with the departing controllers for a short period of time before they shipped out. During that week or two I was in the tower with the departing Tower Chief when we received incoming rockets and had shrapnel bounce off the tower windows to land on the cat-walk. We called in support fire and gunships.
Another time we received incoming and the gunships saw a lot of VC setting up out in the jungle. They called in and we got a visit from “Puff” to shower them with some Red Rain from their Gatlin Guns. It sounded like an angry beehive and the falling brass sounded like wind chimes blowing in the breeze. What a symphony. What an awesome display of firepower. What a big pile of toothpicks that were left.
I can’t remember exactly how many controllers were assigned to the 315th on a regular basis. Maybe 4 or 5 at any one time, and maybe a couple Avionics Techs. I extended for a 2nd tour and left Bear Cat on 21 April, 1970 to process out of the Army.
We made friends with a group of Aussies while we were there. They shared some of their beer from home called XXX. Many years later I was reminded of the taste when I tasted Foster’s here in the States. When we first got there our barracks (hooch) was an open design. When the Aussies left, they told us we could have anything we wanted out of their building. We stripped it to the bare studs, dragged it all back over to the 315th and Charles Fletcher, who had been a carpenter before getting drafted, designed and built us one-man rooms with storage. Beautiful job.
We also built a Club on the other side of our building. We all pooled our ration cards and financial contributions from each of us to buy an opening inventory of sodas, beer and booze at the PX in Long Binh to start up our “BAR”. I ran the place while I was there. I remember that everything was really inexpensive, like $0.25 or $0.50 per shot or can of beer. We STILL made so much profit that I had to throw a BBQ once a month or so with free rib-eyes or hamburgers and drinks, in order to use up the extra money. Every time someone would go on R&R we would send money with them and a shopping list of things to bring back for the Detachment.
We had periodic rocket & mortar attacks. One time we lost our hearing for a while when a rocket exploded on the other side of the wall protecting the entrance to the bomb shelter. The resulting concussion that reverberated inside the metal container just destroyed our ear drums. It took 20 or 30 minutes for our hearing to return to any semblance of normalcy. The resulting crater from the explosion was about three feet across and a foot deep. All I can say is, Thank God for the wall. The sand bags on that side were all torn up."

More History on the 330th TC
(email 111101)
Information is from Flight Engineer Rodney Brown of the 330th TC Recovery Platoon from October 1966 to August 1967

Their Recovery CH-47 Helicopter(s) had this design and colors painted on the nose (see Flight Crew Picture below)

 330th Recovery Platoon, December 1966
( photo is the property of CWO Ernest Wells and may not be copied without his permission )
CWO Ernest Wells (Back Row - 2nd from viewer's right)
 Flight Engineer Rodney Brown who volunteered this information of the 330th TC (Back Row - 3rd from viewer's right)

The Pocket Hangers on many of the Recovery Platoon are from their Assigned (or formerly assigned) Units (NOT the 330th TC)
"The pilots for the Recovery Platoon came from all over the 765th TB. We (330th TC) only had about five pilots for two and sometimes three aircraft and they were not all assigned to the 330th TC. Some, like the Major standing on the far right next to Ernie(CWO Wells) came directly from the 765th Transportation Battalion staff. Two or three Recovery Platoon personnel in this picture had been involuntarily reassigned from the 147th ASHC down at the other end of the airfield. They were there to add some real Chinook experience to the Recovery Platoon.  The reason for this was that "all" of us had graduated from Chinook school about three months before this picture was taken and had no real field experience. The Hillclimbers, all of them, were extremely upset at the transfer and wanted nothing to do with the 330th. As a result some of them continued to wear their Hillclimber patches regardless of being told to discard them."
