of South Vietnam from May 1963 to February 1972. During the nine years in Vietnam, the
114th Assault Helicopter Company (AHC) participated in 16 combat campaigns and was
presented with 8 unit citations. After departing the Republic of South Vietnam in February
1972, the 114th Aviation Company was assigned to the Panama Canal Zone where it served
with distinction. The 114th was deactivated at Fort Clayton, Panama Canal Zone in October
1987. This site is dedicated to those "KNIGHTS", both Pilots and Crewmen,
who did not return home.

As you know,
the 114th Aviation Company had a historic and vital role in
the Vietnam War, from early 1963 until 1972. The unit was the
“First” in many of the annals of Army Aviation in that war and set
precedents for others to follow. The valor of the men who served
is attested to by numerous individual and unit awards. As a
result, during the business meeting at the last reunion, the membership
authorized the executive council to pursue a suitable monument to be
constructed and installed at Fort Rucker.
11, 2019, a monument to the company, the individual platoons, and
the attached units will be dedicated at the
Veterans Park, located next to the Army
Aviation Museum at Ft. Rucker. The front of the monument
has the patches of the individual units and the rear has the names of
those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The service
will begin at 10:00 on Thursday morning. Afterward, there
will be a gathering in the museum with light refreshments.
Fairfield Inn (334-348-1580)
or the Hampton Inn (334-347-5763), both in
Enterprise, Ala are conveniently located to the site. There are
several other motels/hotels in the area that are very nice and
If you were
in the unit or one of the attached/supporting elements, or are a
surviving relative on one who served, you are more than welcome to join
with us next month in honoring and remembering this remarkable unit and
the men who made it all possible. Ft. Rucker is assisting us and
needs a head count, so if you and your guest are coming, please shoot me
an email at email@example.com
or a text to 225-936-8488.
forward to seeing many of you as we honor the memory of the unit, all
who served and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
A wonderful tribute to the service

Vietnam Vet Radio is an internet only non-profit radio station dedicated to the men and women who served in the Vietnam War and their families and friends. With a few exceptions all the songs played are from the Vietnam War era. We also play the authentic jingles and public service announcements that were played on AFVN (American Forces Vietnam Network) Radio.
While Vietnam Vet Radio is neither political or religious it is most certainly a pro-America and pro-military radio station that acknowledges that we are a blessed people. No anti-war rhetoric or anti-war songs.
Please contact us with suggestions on how Vietnam Vet Radio can better serve you.
