Dana Kelly arrived in-country in January 1970 assigned to the  536th at Vung Tau and left in December 1970 as a Major. Having had extensive instructor pilot and flight examiner experience in his previous aircraft, he was steamrolled into the squadron's Stan/Eval position in less than 90 days after his arrival in South East Asia. When the squadron was moved to Cam Ranh Bay, he became the deputy Stan/Eval guy at Wing Headquarters.   (Thanks to Dana for all these great photos)
