The "Knights of the Air" consisted of four combat ready flight platoons. The White Knights, Red Knights, 114th AHC Logo Cobra's and Lancers who were in operation only in 1966-1967. In addition, there was The Gold Knight "The Commander" and our Blue Knights "Road Service". 

The company was based at Vinh Long Air Field, Republic 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.

From current indications, Hurricane Irma will pass east of Enterprise Monday and be around Birmingham Tuesday.  The rest of the week looks great and thatís when most of our activities are.  I have heard from several in Florida and along the coast who have cancelled due to the storm and problems getting there.  Any who canít make it will get their fees refunded.  So, unless power is knocked out, things should go well except for travel being a problem for some.  If you can arrive a day or so late we would still be glad to see you.  Pray for those in the stormís path. Jim

At the present time, all indications are that Hurricane Irma will hit the Florida Keys on Sunday and turn north/northeast.  It should be past Georgia by Tuesday and moving up the Atlantic coast.  Enterprise is on the west side of the hurricane and that is generally the side with less rain, etc.  It is also far enough west that rain and wind should be minimal in that area.  Travel for those on the east coast might be a problem but Southeast Alabama should have minimal impact by the storm and it should be much further north by the time we really get started.  Iíll try to keep you posted.  At present it looks like all will be well and I look forward to seeing you next week.  Jim

Vietnam Vet Radio
 
bookmark it now!

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.

~Agent Orange~

The U.S. military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides on trees and vegetation during the Vietnam War. Several decades later, concerns about the health effects from these chemicals continue. VA offers eligible Veterans a free Agent Orange Registry health exam for possible long-term health problems related to exposure.
