COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Tony Coalson | 201st Aviation Company, 1st Field Force

7:42   |   Helicopter pilot Tony Coalson felt lucky when he was placed in the 201st Aviation Company instead of being thrown into the replacement circuit. He was sent to Vietnam on a troop ship, a practice that was soon to be abandoned. The trip was uncomfortable, but very interesting.
