Exploits of a Combat Helicopter Pilot
Vietnam Saga tells the story of Stan Corvin, a U.S. Army helicopter pilot, from his first deployment to Vietnam in 1968 as a Warrant Officer, his subsequent transfer to Schweinfurt, Germany in 1970, his voluntary second deployment back to Vietnam in 1971 as a Captain, and finally, his separation from the U.S.Army in 1973.
Soon after you begin the book, you will see, through his eyes, the results of an unspeakably evil massacre perpetrated against an indigenous people unable to defend themselves. This event so enraged Stan that he vowed to avenge the victims and set him on a course of revenge against the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong murderers. He tapped into this rage before each low level reconnaissance flight to prepare himself for the ruthless and merciless killing he unleashed on the enemy combatants. It worked perfectly!
As his story unfolds, you will also experience the same gut wrenching effect of intense combat that Stan felt as he was shot at and frequently hit by AK-47 and .51 caliber machine gun fire. Finally, he describes the appalling shock of being shot down twice in ten minutes while trying to save an American fighter pilot shot down near the DMZ and surrounded by 12,000 NVA soldiers. After thirteen hours on the ground, the rescue of Stan, who was wounded, his three crew members and the four other crew members also shot down trying to pick him up, is a life affirming miracle that few people have ever experienced.
His transparency about these experiences and his heart-felt responses to them makes this a compelling story and a great book!
