This evocative painting depicts the brave Huey pilots of RVN D/3/5 Cavarly. These men paid a large price for their duty in Vietnam as did many other cavalry units serving during this time. The "Air Cav" was an integral part of operations throughout the war, and one of these gallant units was called "The Longknives".
Depicted are a couple Hueys as they rise into the thick humid morning air to begin the days mission.
SOLD. Original oil in the collection of Dennis Sorges, who served with the Longknives from 1969-1970.
