"Merry Christmas Bert"

17th SOS sign, Phu Cat

Merry Christmas
- A Red Cross "Donut Dolly" throws a Christmas package up to Co-pilot Bert Blanton who is sitting in his gunship on alert. For those lucky enough to see or be stationed near them, Red Cross workers brought lots of cheer and bits of home to troops in Vietnam during the holidays.
