Imagine for a moment flying a small fixed-wing aircraft just feet over the jungle canopy. Enemy anti-aircraft and small-arms fire is ripping through the air around you. You begin to “jink,” that is, entering into a run of constant banks and turns to throw the gunners off. In your ears is the blaring of three different radio frequencies: the men on the ground; the soldiers at the nearby base; and friendly aircraft whizzing around you. Your only navigation is a small topo-map and what you can recall of the topography from memory. You have no weapons except your trusty CAR-15, which you thrust through the window of your plane and blind-fire at the enemy below. It’s a turkey shoot, and you’re the turkey. All the while your thoughts are latched on the U.S. Green Berets on the ground you’re there to support. They’re pinned down by enemy mortar fire. You and your O-1 Bird Dog are the only links between them and friendly artillery fire. You call in hastily-read coordinates and pray that your math is right. This is the life of a U.S. Air Force Bird Dog pilot in Vietnam. The O-1 Bird Dogs, small fixed-wing planes, are deployed across the country to provide aerial reconnaissance and direct air support. It’s “long hours of sheer boredom, interspersed by moments of stark terror.” For men like Mike Leonard, it’s all in a day’s work. Or as he would say: “You do the job you were trained to do.”
A dedicated U. S. Army assault helicopter pilot in Vietnam just wants to do his job and return home to his wife and family. But to do so, he has to survive harrowing combat missions, bad weather, mechanical problems, human error, and a commander who is more interested in personal glory and promotion than his men’s well being. Along the way, he participated in the last major American combat operation of the war. Lam Son 719, a major incursion into Laos, which lasted sixty days and was the costliest period of the war for helicopter pilots and crew members.
