OUTLAWS IN VIETNAM
1966-67 in the Delta
Ride a Huey with the Outlaws of the 175th Aviation Company (AML) in the Mekong Delta and experience a first-hand 1st Lieutenant’s account of a tour in Vietnam from 1966 to 1967. David Eastman’s lively account reveals an untold story of competence, camaraderie, and fellowship. Often referred to as the one combat element of the US Army that did not succumb to the stress of the war in Vietnam, the men of the helicopters kept their discipline and their spirit.
