First-person account of helicopter combat in Vietnam. The author volunteered to become a helicopter pilot in 1966, convinced that by the time he finished training, the Vietnam War would be over. Little did he know that he would see some of the war's most intense action, including the Tet offensive. He had to deal with countless dangers, including treacherous terrains, blinding weather, faulty equipment, friendly fire and more. He also tells of the camaraderie and humor shared by his fellow soldiers. Of the 12 pilots in his platoon, eleven were wounded and one captured. The stories in this book will shock you, anger you and sometimes bring a smile to your face. Most of all, you will find out what it was like for a 21 yr old farm boy to find himself suddenly immersed in vicious daily combat.
