Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association Seeks to Erect Monument at Arlington National Cemetery

The monument would be located in Section 35, bordering Memorial Drive. The negotiated dimensions—22 inches high, 21 inches deep (front to back at the base), 32 inches wide across the front, and trapezoidal in shape—contain all design elements of the original Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and Crewmember Monument proposed to the Secretary of the Army.  To get involved and receive more information, contact Central Florida’s local resource: Tom Marshall at
