No weapon came to symbolize US military presence in Vietnam like the helicopter. Despite a multitude of other weapons systems — tanks, jet fighters, gunships, river craft, aircraft carriers — the helicopter caught the public's eye. Whether on TV or in news photos the helicopter always seemed to be there, landing troops, evacuating casualties, providing support to em battled grunts. And to a large degree this view of the helicopter in Vietnam was totally justified.

For despite the contributions of other weapons, the war in South Vietnam was a 'helicopter war'. All the weapons systems used dur ing the conflict played an important part in the fighting, but without the helicopter it would have been virtually impossible to wage the ground war in Vietnam. And холосто conflict, the ground war in South Vietnam was what the whole issue revolved around.

 

Almost from the first, helicopters were an integral part of the US involve ment in Vietnam. The deployment of two helicopter companies in mid-December of 1961 was the first major symbol of US combat strength in Viet nam. The arrival of the helicopter gunships signaled the first 'overt' use of American military power against the Viet Cong (VC). Later, the arrival of the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) signified a major commitment of US strength and resolve. Toward the end when the American military presence wound down in favor of Vietnamization, helicopter units were among the last to be pulled out. Finally when the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) overran South Vietnam in the spring of 1975, the last Americans in Saigon were evacuated by helicopters. And, just as in the early days of the conflict when helicopter crewmen were among the first on the casualty list, the last two ser vicemen to die were helicopter crewmen who perished when their chopper crashed in the South China Sea.
