  •  No, I was a crew chief (4+ / 0-)

    Due to being a fuck up, when I was sent over I was an E-1 Private. An E-1 couldn't be a crew chief so I went to the maintenance platoon first. When I made E-3, PFC, I was transferred to the First platoon (Playboys) which were AH-1G cobras. The other platoons were "C" model Huey gunships. Because the Cobra only had two seats (pilot and gunner) I did not become a crew chief/door gunner, and thank my lucky stars for it.

    I did fly a few "Firefly" missions.
