AUGUST 11: AUTHOR AND VIETNAM VET LEW JENNINGS

Over 12,000 helicopters were used in the Vietnam War, which is why it became known as "The Helicopter War". Almost half of the helicopters, 5,086, were lost. Helicopter pilots and crews accounted for nearly 10 percent of all the US casualties suffered in Vietnam, with nearly 5,000 killed and an untold number of wounded.  Lew Jennings flew 726 Air Cavalry Cobra Gunship Helicopter missions receiving over 50 combat decorations including Three Distinguished Flying Crosses for Valor.  His presentation of describes first-hand the harrowing experiences of helicopter pilots and crews in combat operations from the far South to the DMZ including the infamous A Shau Valley, Hamburger Hill, LZ Airborne and others. Lew’s highly acclaimed memoir “19 Minutes to Live – Helicopter Combat in Vietnam” illustrates the incredible courage and determination of helicopter pilots and crews supporting those heroes that carried a rucksack and a rifle in Vietnam. Lew will have signed copies of his book available for sale at the breakfast.
