    A huge heartfelt Thank You to Mike, Chris, their crew and everyone at Vietnam Helicopters, that made it possible to have your Huey,65-09961, at our annual Blackhawks Reunion. To have the opportunity to fly again in a Huey was absolutely priceless for all of the Blackhawks. For more than 40 years, our Wives, Children, and Grandchildren have heard our stories of flying helicopters in Vietnam. At this reunion, they had the opportunity to experience what flying in a Huey feels like, something we will never forget. Thank You for making our 2015 reunion a fantastic experience. All of your activities in the past and future ones, are greatly appreciated by all Vietnam Veterans. Your organization is priceless!!
