Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Larry Washington | D Troop, 1st Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment - Army

9:22   |   His last day in combat was memorable. On his first flight of the day, Huey pilot Larry Washington snagged a tree on a gun mount. On the second, he struggled to control the aircraft when several issues arose at the landing zone. He performed a beautiful maneuver to recover but the rest of the day did not improve. All he could do was keep in mind that it was his last day.
