I was assigned to the 165th Aviation Group during October 1970 - August 1971. The unit was under the command of Col. Francis Kelly and XO LTC Martin Heuer, both of whom were excellent officers. The 165th did a commendable job of protecting the freedom of the South Vietnamese until the communist take-over in 1975.

I remain convinced that the Vietnam War was a conflict America could have won had it the full backing of our country and our commander in chief. The sad truth is that JFK, LBJ, William Westmoreland, Creighton Abrams and Congress never committed to winning. We went in with a "delaying action" objective.

The lesson we hopefully learned--but it's not evident yet--is that whenever the US commits to a combat mission, we only do so with the full backing of the American people, an arsenal sufficient to overpower the enemy and with a clear plan of leaving the field of battle once the mission has been accomplished.

What a great site!

I'm busy building "The Crystal Ship" and came across your little write up.. its given my build a whole new meaning, thank you for that, and thank you for sharing all these incredible stories. Not only yours but to all those who lost their lives during that period.

I have one small question if you don't mind answering.. I noticed a 22 inside the yellow circle on the sides of the cobra, that and a slogan painted across the nose ( LAST .... ). Could you perhaps explain the significance of the 22 and perhaps complete the slogan for me?

Your help would be most appreciated.

Keep well, and thank you again for sharing.

Kind regards from South Africa

I’m short about one-hundred COPTER NOSE ART photos for my next book project. Who out there are sitting on prints, negatives, slides or Polaroids of Vietnam War images showing ARMY helicopters sporting colorful, “personalized” artwork and/or names? ANECDOTES pertaining to copter nose art are welcomed as well. Let’s not shortchange aviation history any longer. Add your voice and visuals to the in-country narrative of painted Hueys, Cobras, Hooks, Loaches, etc, 1962-73. Thank you, John Brennan, former SP5, 114 AHC, 1970-71, Mekong Delta
