Troops, your viewing assignment for the month of November is to watch Operation Huey Restoration.
The Huey became the symbol of U.S. combat forces in Vietnam. In country, more than 12,000 helicopters served alongside our troops. The 7,000 Hueys that served flew 9,713,762 hours. At home, millions watched them fly on nightly news reports. The Huey is an iconic image of the Vietnam Era and a fitting display at the Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center.
In February 2013, a group of veteran volunteers, many of them Vietnam Era helicopter pilots and maintenance technicians, began the restoration of a 1964 Bell UH-1D Huey helicopter. Every Vietnam Veteran has Huey memories to share.
After you watch the film, email your thoughts and comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll review it on the last show of the month.
