Samuel Arthur Haile Jr is the eldest son of Arthur and Dorothy. Sammy as he is known to family and friends, is the owner of Haile Exxon in Heber Springs. He and my father-in-law were partners until Arthur's death in 1973. Sammy and I served in units stationed close together in Vietnam. On a couple of occasions our units flew missions together and were able to visit each other. He was a helicopter crew chief with the 25th Infantry Division and I was a helicopter pilot with the 187th AHC. He married Ann Albright after Vietnam and now has two beautiful daughters, Jennifer and Pamela. Photo circa 1986
