Cpt Larcomb, Buccaneer, was the first pilot wounded and Major Don Chabot, Bikini Lead, was the first aviator killed. The base eventually expanded to house the headquarters of the US Army's 52d Combat Aviation Battalion of the 17th Combat Aviation Group, 1st Aviation Brigade. At its peak, Camp Holloway was home to two additional UH-1 "Huey" assault helicopter companies, a CH-47 "Chinook" company, an O-1 Bird Dog reconnaissance airplane company, a CH-54 "Skycrane" company, and other supporting units. A Viet Cong attack in the early morning hours of February 7, 1965 killed eight, wounded 108 friendly, and destroyed 18 aircraft. This prompted U.S. President Lyndon Johnson to begin bombing North Vietnam. (en)
