This memorial has a Huey known as the Viking Surprise it was one of the first smoke ships in Vietnam. This helicopter was shot down in March of 1967 and sent to the Corpus Christi Bay (the ship I served on in Vietnam) to be repaired after receiving
135 bullet holes. Touring this memorial was both emotional and educational for me. One of the exhibits was scuba equipment which brought back many memories of my time diving in the Mekong Delta.
