To this day, 40 plus years later, when I speak of the heroes of Vietnam, I always tell people of the outstanding courage and bravery of the chopper pilots that risked their lives to fly into a hot zone and stay there until their mission was complete…sometimes to hover while taking withering fire and load up the wounded; other times flying the edges of the LZ and laying down covering fire for the Marines landing in the middle of the LZ.
