Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

6:48   |   The takeoff was a tense moment for Thomas Gipson. The Huey pilot was leaving Vietnam on a commercial airliner and he was not in control, hence his nervousness. He had this feeling again when he ventured into rush hour traffic back home. The Army offered to promote him straight to captain if he would go back for another tour, but that was a tough sell.
