Another Veteran Came Home

When Mark found out one of the helicopters he took care of in Viet Name had returned to the United States and now was on display in Soddy-Daisy TN, he had to go and see it.

BlueStar 786 The people of Soddy-Daisy TN dedicated this Veterans Park.

The core display has listings of the residents of Soddy-Daisy that gave their all in WWI, WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam.

At the Soddy-Daisy Veterans Park, there is a UH-1 Huey Helicopter display.  This particular Huey, 64-13786 was in Mark's unit, the 48th Assault Helicopter Company in Viet Nam.  Unlike many of the Hueys in Viet Nam, this one returned home and served to train new pilots.  When this helicopter was retired from the Army, a veterans unit acquired the helicopter and restored it to its Viet Nam markings and mounted it on a pedestal in the Soddy-Daisy Veterans Park.

It was a walk down memory lane for Mark.  For more on Mark's time in the Army and specifically Viet Nam, go to 390th TC.
