Pacific Grove Tribune, CA Aug. 28, 1969 art (mislabeled 1968)
Grovian Decorated for Valor in Vietnam Helicopter Action
While in Vietnam, Sp5 John Harrington spent about as much time in the air as he did on the ground. A new assignee at the Army Combat Developments Command Experimentation Command, Harrington recently received the air metal with first through tenth oak leaf clusters. At a minimum of 25 flights per medal, this adds up to at least 275 aerial missions for Harrington over hostile territory. Harrington was a helicopter door gunner with the 128th Helicopter Assault Company at Phu Loi. Harrington, who now works as apprentice crew chief in the CDCEC aviation section lives with his wife Beverly in Pacific Grove.
