Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bill Cunningham | Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 364 (HMM 364) - Marines

9:11   |   There were 87 men on some high ground surrounded by Viet Cong and Marine helicopter pilot Bill Cunningham had a problem. There was only room for one ship at a time to land in the tiny landing zone they had hacked out of the bush. It would be one at a time so he spiraled down for the first load. Then he felt like a sledgehammer hit his leg.
