VC Village Air Strike
Before a helicopter landed in an LZ on an Air Assault, the LZ was sometimes prepped with
B-52 bombing and Napalm strikes by the Air Force. But, was always prepped with artillery
and gun ship rockets. Even then the LZ would still be hot when we landed to drop off troops.
Sometimes the LZ was so hot we couldn't land so we hovered over the drop zone and the
troops would jump out, sometimes ten feet off the ground. If they didn't jump fast enough we
would have to push them off. That was rare but it did happen. I did it once and the trooper
shot at me when he hit the ground. We were already on our way out, so he missed me. I
hated doing it but I didn't want my crew to get shot down either.
