COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Ron Dillard | 227th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) - Army

5:05   |   Flying was his lifelong dream but new helicopter pilot Ron Dillard got stuck in a desk job when he got to Vietnam. Not only that, he was the safety officer, which meant that the other pilots thought he was monitoring them. He was over five months in before he managed to get out of headquarters and fly actual missions.
