Was watching the '07 TF movie and when dad saw Spooky shooting at Scorponok, he said, "damn, never saw that in the daylight." Dad has seen what an AC-130 gunship do, and at night. it made him believe in dragons again. He told me about how he saw one hose down an entire area trying to keep a firebase from being overrun, the gatling gun fired so fast it made a red halo appear in the sky. the howitzer belched and thumped. he swears that to this day, Spooky dumped so much fire, it could have mowed the lawn and landscaped the backyard. he said it was one of the three most impressive things he ever saw back then in 1967. the other 2? The First time he saw a Cobra Gunship attack. He didn't even know it was one of ours and his unit shot at it. And lastly, he saw another firebase overrun from a spot two klicks away. So many people rushing into the camp that they turned howitzers and artillery pieces into straight and level shotguns firing outward. No air support because Hueys or fighter/bombers couldn't tell foe from friendly. lasted a little over 6 hours. He told me that he sat there with a Prick-25 (PRC radio) and heard orders for complete standby; all units in the area were being called in for reinforcements. dad didn't finish the movie with me. i guess some things are impressive, but don't do much for the spirit, ya know? just sharing an observation, a moment with my dad with you here. that's all.
