| The 832 medical company based in the town I live in flys uh-1v's. They are great aircraft and I think its amazing that nearly half a century after the venerable "huey" first flew, they are still in service. |

| I live in Montevideo, Uruguay (South America).
In the museum of the Uruguayan air force there is an UH 1 V matriculation 72-21583; since there exists the possibility of restoring it, I should want to know if this particular Huey was in the war of Vietnam and in what unit it served.
From many thanks in advance.

| Dear Sirs,
In 1974 I was on the first mission for Air Medic Inc out of Morgan City,La. We rescued an off shore worker and flew him to a hosp in N.O. He lived!
This was my introduction to helicopters as an EMS vehicle. Previous to this I was NYC EMS EMT/ER Tech.
Where can I find a decent model of this durable and famous "chopper" from my history?

| We are restoring a UH-1V for display purposes at our returned and Services league buildings. It'll commemorate past and on-going US/Australian/NZ military co-operation generally and in Vietna,m in particular. It was from Little Rock, Arkansas. Crew Chief was Sgt Salpietra. The number is 0-21763.
Now, can ANYONE tell me anything about its history, for the plaques we'll be putting up with it? We would greatly appreciate any information.
