The Vietnam War was the Huey war -- a brutal war, where the lethal Huey gunship wrought havoc on the Viet Cong. The Huey revolutionized U.S. Army tactics and changed the way modern wars were fought. Veterans describe their feelings on flying the Huey into battle and how they could rely on the helicopter to pull them through even the worst firefights. It was a vital lifeline, providing food, ammunition, and fire support, and its role in medical evacuation was the difference between life and death for thousands of men.
