"I now know why men who have been to war yearn to reunite. Not to tell stories or look at old pictures. Not to laugh or weep. Comrades gather because they long to be with the men who once acted at their best; men Who suffered and sacrificed, who were stripped of their humanity. I did not pick these men. They were delivered by fate and the military. But I know them in a way I know no other men. I have never given anyone such trust. They were willing to guard something more precious than my life. They would have carried my reputation, the memory of me. It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for one another. As long as I have memory, I will think of them all, every day. I am sure that when I leave this world, my last thought will be of my family and my comrades... Such good men."

Our gatherings are held in conjunction with the Vietnam Helicopter Crew Members Association (VHCMA).  For those who are unfamiliar with this group, it is primarily for the enlisted crewmembers and has been organized since 1987.  It is very similar to the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association (VHPA), with some exceptions.  The VHCMA -- understands that both pilots and enlisted crews served together -- gladly welcomes pilots into it membership -- much less formal at its reunions -- and just a lot more fun.

By holding our reunions with the VHCMA, we get a lot of logistical support from this group.    As a registered attendee to a VHCMA reunion, you have access to whatever activities they offer (extra fees may apply to some events).

So, consider an upcoming 161st reunion and in the meantime, view some of our past reunions.
