Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Mike Waugh | 128th Assault Helicopter Company, 11th Aviation Battalion, 12th Aviation Group

7:53   |   His first Vietnam tour was like a romantic adventure, a young man off doing macho stuff. When he left for his second tour, he had a wife and a child, so it was quite different. This time he was a helicopter pilot and a captain, although he deferred to lower ranking pilots who were more experienced. Now he would really learn to fly by picking up on and perfecting the things they can't teach you in flight school.
