Memorial to Vietnam chopper pilots unveiled at Arlington National Cemetery

News

A new memorial is now in place at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington honoring the service of helicopter pilots during the Vietnam War.

Helicopter pilots were responsible for many dangerous jobs during the war such as taking troops into enemy territory, evacuating the wounded and dead, and much more.

A veteran from Pennsylvania played a major role in bringing the memorial to life. 

Some called the Vietnam War, the forgotten war.  But the showing of support at the dedication Wednesday proved those who served may be gone but are not forgotten.

Local Veterans’ advocate Dr. Barry Booth attended the dedication ceremony and sent us these pictures and video of a fly-over of Arlington.
