Kurzbeschreibung

From the first day Airman Ronald L. Darr saw a demonstration of a Bell medivac helicopter used in the Korean war, he knew he wanted to fly helicopters. Becoming a Dustoff pilot for the U.S. Army in Vietnam in an unarmed, UH-1 Huey, putting his life on the line every day, flying into one hot combat zone after another to save countless lives. But the memories of and bitterness stemming from the Vietnam War and ill treatment of veterans by both the Government and civilians took a heavy toll on his mind, body, and spirit.

Thirty years after leaving Vietnam, Chief Warrant Officer Darr knew he had to make one more lifesaving mission: his own. Through the telling of his experiences in Vietnam, he not only frees himself from the shame and stigma imposed by the U.S. government and society, but he resurrects the honor and the dignity of every man and woman who served their country in Vietnam, these forgotten warriors who demonstrated their unswerving patriotism by serving in a country halfway around the world only to be treated as social outcasts upon their return home.

Enter the lives of those who flew unarmed into battle to save lives. Experience the terror projected by a determined enemy. Savor that wonderful feeling of saving a human’s life in the midst of a hell created on Earth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rich in DUSTOFF history 18. Februar 2011
Von Flightmed29 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Mr Darr for one has an excellent memory and is a true Soldier. I read this book on my way back from Korea in 2005 just before my first combat deployment. The only thing that has really changed in Dustoff is technology. After reading what Mr. Darr wrote about his experiences and PTSD, I have a better understanding of my own issues after 2 combat deployments. Thanks Mr Darr and it was an excellent book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Vietnam Narrative: 22. April 2012
Von Rube Goldberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book immensely. The only distraction was due to the incredible amount of spelling errors. For example, the author constantly went back and forth from rice "paddies" to rice "patties". There were lots of words that didn't belong, as well as words that were missing.

If only the authors would have secured the services of a proof-reader, I would have easily given it 5 stars. Still a very riveting story however, and I look forward to reading their next book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Read! from a Fellow Dustoff AC (aircraft Commander) 11. Mai 2013
Von Beverly J Dienlin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Our tours and Operational Areas over lapped. We were located @ Long Binh, about 30 Knicks NE of Siagon. There were three (3) operational Air Ambulance Detachments: the 57th with call signs ranging from 70 to 79 (I was Dustoff 78), the 283rd, call signs in the 30's -I was later Dustoff 30 when I switched with Lt. Chimannello who wanted to stay at LBJ; his sister was a Nurse at the 91st Evac hospital also co-located...,(he was killed several months later flying in bad weather near Nui Ba Dinh with a co-pilot I'd recommended be FEB'd and stripped of his wings; he would panic under pressure, and pressure was a given flying Dustoff (Aero-medical evacuations). Then there was a 4th Head Quarters Detachment made up from the other three to act as a central Command authority and centralized records keeping and repository section. I'd need to go back into his book for his Detachment ID, but I believe it was the 254th, with Call-signs from 100 to 109. there were some pilots who never made Aircraft Commander, because of a lack of flying skills and decision making under heavy stress. I recall Darr's shoot down, especially because we shared a common Officers Club. Ron you brought back a lot of memories. I hope in someway we can get together.... I do regret not being able to buy a hard copy. A medic wrote about myself and two other AC's in 2011; it was just one of several missions where I went through at least 3 (three) aircraft to complete a mission. His book is on Amazon: "The End Of The Road," by 1SG Charles T. Bagley. I remembered him as a Medic stationed at Dak To. I extended, spending 20 months flying Dustoff, and regret to this day that I didn't extend again. In all I spent 20 months as Dustoff, then went back as a Mohawk OV-1 Instructor, and mission pilot mostly flying over SE Laos -it was classified as secret and ant memories of such flights, often through heavy flax were figments of our imaginations....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Favorite book about those who flew Dustoff missions. 25. April 2013
Von PC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
So far this has been my favorite book about the helicopter role in RVN. Dustoff and Scouts were the most dangerous helicopter missions flown during the war. This really gave a good representation of what took place during the missions and how perilous they were. Well written also.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome book 7. April 2013
Von Sean Lethcoe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the bluntness of Darr telling his story and his recovery. Unknown to me when I chose this book, my father was a Staff Sergeant on the ground with the 9th fighting when Darr was shot down. My dad was one of the lucky ones that survived thanks to helicopter pilots like Mr. Darr. Thank you Mr Farr for sharing your story.
