Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Kevin Hathaway | 173rd Assault Helicopter Company - Army

7:26   |   Door gunner Kevin Hathaway had a great pilot on his ship who had started out poorly, but grew quickly into his job as an aircraft commander. One day, he saw a Cessna spotter plane crash near an ARVN encampment. He came down to a low hover and had his gunner jump out and retrieve the injured pilot. (Caution: coarse language.)
