4:27   |   Kevin Hathaway was only seventeen but he was serving with the mechanized infantry in Germany. He knew he would be going to Vietnam once he turned eighteen, but he figured out a way to get reclassified as a door gunner on a helicopter. He would fly over rice paddies instead of slogging through them.
