CHOPPER PILOT - NOT ALL OF US WERE HEROES. by CWO R.J. Sinsigalli, a helicopter pilot with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment's Air Cav Troop. What was combat really like? Was it in-coming friendly fire that killed almost you? Were you issued a directive, not to fire back if you received enemy ground fire, until you called in and asked permission? How do you attack when you are out of ammunition? Can you get the Purple Heart for flying into a tree? What was Martha Raye really like when she was in-country with her USO show? How did the troops feel about, and react to Jane Fonda and her visit to Hanoi? What about the effects of drug and alcohol addiction, Agent Orange exposure, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? And there's much, much more! Anyone interested in war stories that "tell-it-like-it-was" will enjoy reading this publication about the lives of some of the Army Chopper Pilots that flew in Vietnam during the longest war in American history. 6" x 9", 184 pages. 100+ photos and maps.
