A fellow DUSTOFF crewman - DUSTOFF Vietnam Memorial. On behalf of fellow DUSTOFFers, please accept my condolences to the family of our comrade, Billy Morris. I invite family and friends to visit the official webpage of The DUSTOFF Association, a nonprofit organization for Army Medical Department enlisted and officer personnel, aviation crewmembers, and others who are (or ever were) engaged in (or actively supported in any capacity) Army aeromedical evacuation programs in war or peace.
