As a retired member of the USAF Airborne Artillery Brigade (AKA: AC-130 Spectre, the A-model in my case), may I say that for many of us, you guys were the reason for the mission.
Bud, as one of the grunts on the ground, my thanks to you guys for being there when we needed you. Your predecessor, "Spooky", kept my company from being overrun more than once over in "The Arizona" (actually, the An Hoa Basin), RVN, in early 1969. They only had the 7.62 GE miniguns back then, but that solid stream of orange arcing down was a welcome sight , many nights.
