"The Man in the Door"

A story by Marine, Michael Rierson

Wild Thing's comment.........

Thank you to all of our Vietnam Veterans. This video is so well done, very moving I am sure the very first cut of the blade into the air brings back many memories. With tears in my eyes I thank you all . To the door gunners , the gunners on Huey gunships, the crew chief's, and all that served in that war and others that have memories watching this video.............brothers all.

......Thank you RAC for sending this to me.

RAC has a website that is awesome. 336th Assault Helicopter Company

I knew a bunch of those men in the door, RAC was one. Courageous, capable, dependable. Also, a bit crazy. I will never forge the whop, whop, whop of Huey blades. I miss that sound in the choppers of today.

Thanks RAC for the time T-Bird 4 and Air America helped me get out of Nam Can outpost down in Camau.
