I always take pause on 6 June and 7 December every year to remember those terrible days in our nation's history that saw much blood shed in the name of freedom. I like that I also have a small memory of my own to associate with one of those days.
Could you still fly one today. Is it like a bicycle , you never forget. I flew in a Huey one time at the Atlanta Raceway. That was my first and last time in a helicopter. The flight engineer got a kick out of me turning green.
