Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Thomas Gipson | 4th Aviation Battalion, 4th Infantry Division - Army

6:41   |   On Thanksgiving day in 1968, Huey pilot Thomas Gipson spent all day delivering meals to various camps and bases. When he saw what his own holiday meal consisted of, he felt a little neglected. It was dangerous operating in a dense jungle and he recalls an incident in which another aircraft was shot down.
