“Distinguished Wings over Vietnam” tells the honest, personal accounts of four combat pilots during the Vietnam War. From helicopters to jets, these men reveal how they felt risking their lives in a war that was confusing and unpopular, to say the least. They talk about their missions, the close calls, and how they were treated when they came home. Saving lives by taking lives changed them forever.
