Huey helicopter keeps history flying high

The Bay Area-Based EMU, Inc. (Experimental Military Unit) or HueyVets will be paying tribute to our nations heroes with special fly overs on Memorial Day. Their fully restored Vietnam era Huey helicopter (EMU 309) will be a part of four events, appearing in the sky at Woodward Park in Manteca on May 21 and 24, and at HaywardÕs Lone Tree Cemetery and Chapel of the Chimes on May 25.

HueyVets is a non profit organization comprised of veterans and family members who serve the veteran community and educate the public about the history of the Huey and the 135th Assault Helicopter Company (AHC) that served in Vietnam. They also strive to preserve the memory of those who served in the 135th AHC and offer emotional support to combat veterans with Post traumatic Stress Disorder of all eras through comradery and contact with the Huey.

The organization participates in 12 to 15 events per year, from airport open houses and fly overs to airshows and military vehicle events. They were recently onsite at the Hayward Executive Airport Open House on May 17. Their long term goal is to get a second Huey; they are always keeping an eye out for one, or a generous donor to make the purchase.
