Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Dick Dyer | 118th Assault Helicopter Company, 145th Aviation Battalion, 1st Aviation Brigade

4:50   |   He received ground fire on his first combat mission. Dick Dyer was co-pilot in a Huey and he saw tracers for the first time which was a little unnerving. He felt sorry for the villagers caught in the battle, as he watched gunships blast away at the Viet Cong. Later, he noticed the pilot had let the engine RPM get much lower than he had been taught was safe. This was the beginning of a valuable lesson.
