Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Pat Richardson | 128th Assault Helicopter Company - Army

3:32   |   The 1st Cavalry was the first Army unit to have it's own helicopters and the Vietnam War was the first war in which they were used tactically in large numbers. Pilot Pat Richardson flew for them sometimes, as well as supporting Australian and New Zealand units. He remembers a party during which a couple of American pilots decided they could drink the Australians under the table. Bad idea.
