Spooky Vietnam History on YouTube

The video above is amazing footage of the radio chatter of a Spooky gunship providing fire support to a Special Forces fire base in Vietnam.  The technology changes, some of the vernacular, but one thing that has not changed is the Air Commando commitment to provide the very best close air support to our guys on the ground.  This lineage continues to this day.

Amazing piece of history, and more can be found here.
