Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and Crewmember Monument in Arlington National
Cemetery to be dedicated April 18, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – The Vietnam Helicopter Pilot and Crewmember Monument
will be dedicated in a formal ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, Wednesday,
Apr 18, 2018 at 4:00 PM.

The monument will honor the nearly 5,000 helicopter pilots and crewmembers killed
during the Vietnam War, and is the only monument established to honor all who died
operating rotary-wing aircraft in what is frequently called, “the Helicopter War.”

During the Vietnam War the helicopter became the mainstay for joint operational
mobility. Approximately 12,000 helicopters operated in the combat zone and were
used by all military services: Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. Of this number,
5,086 were destroyed.
Arlington National Cemetery holds the greatest cluster of helicopter casualties from the Vietnam War made up of immediate casualties, Medal of
Honor recipients, and the remains of MIAs recovered in the decades after the war ended in 1975.

First submitted in August, 2014, the monument proposal was initially rebuffed by Army officials citing limited space in the national military
cemetery. Public outcry and Congressional interest led to bipartisan legislation, the Vietnam Helicopter Crew Monument Act, championed by
U.S. Representative Mark Amodei (R-NV-2), and U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK).

The April 18, 2018 dedication ceremony will see Vietnam Veterans, Gold Star Families, and helicopter combat crew members rejoin to honor
friends lost in combat. “With more than 40 years having passed since the end of the Vietnam War, I’m pleased to know this group of deserving
veterans will finally receive proper recognition – an honor that is long overdue,” said Congressman Amodei.
