That's really cool. Why were they called Slicks?
I really don't know why they did? That's just what the grunts called them. The same with the other crew chiefs, pilots, and other door gunners too. When I got there, I had just turned 18 and I was scared to death. So, I didn't ask a lot of questions. Except for survival, otherwise I just took it as word. In all honesty, I really don't know why they called them slicks for, But, I think it was because they were able to get in and out of hot situations really fast. Very slick like, is my guess.
