There have been many stories of those that served in Vietnam. Some stories have been of combat units, battles, Pilots that had been shot down and captured, along with some helicopter squadrons. This story gives a different prespective of the war. 


No matter what conflict that a helicopter and its crew flies into; the job, the level of responsibility and the feelings are the same.


The troops on the ground would hear the sounds of a helicopter coming into their area. Looking up, they saw this complex flying machine blowing sand and dust all around. The chopper brought in anything and everything that the troops needed. The wounded and dead were evacuated. Reenforcements were delivered and the troops were brought back to their camps.


Did the troops ever think about the people that operated these helicopters? What did it take to keep the machines flying? What kind of pressures were the flight crews facing on a daily basis?


This story is the memories of a Combat Helicopter Crew Chief doing what was necessary to accomplish the mission of supporting the troops.
