Goodbye, My Darling; Hello, Vietnam!

This is the true story of a young kid who became a man while serving two tours of duty as a combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam. We follow him through a misspent youth and into flight school. The book takes the reader into the cockpit of Huey gunships, OH-13 Scouts and the CH-47 Chinook. The author was shot down numerous times and wounded, and had more misadventures than the average pilot. Over the jungles of Southeast Asia, the author earned the Distinguished Flying Cross, two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, and seventeen Air Medals. The author was threatened with Courts Martial on more than one occasion, and almost thrown out of the Army after one tour in Vietnam, but continued a career that led to becoming one of the first CW-5's in the military.
