Publisher's Summary

Every man serving in Vietnam was "Every Mother's Son". In 1968, the Marine helicopter crews during the 77-day Siege of Khe Sanh risked everything every day to keep the surrounding Marine hill positions alive and viable. The North Vietnamese Army committed more than 20,000 troops to destroying the Marine hill positions and the Khe Sanh Combat Base. The small Marine outposts were transformed into highly effective kill zones, as the enemy slammed the landing zones with rockets, mortars, artillery, and automatic weapons fire. The Marine helicopter pilots and crews of HMM-262 dedicated their lives to saving their Marine brothers. This is their story.

Too long coming

The wells been running dry on Vietnam memoirs but I want to assure any vet reading this that we do care, we do want to hear your stories. This one is well written, gives more background from the soldiers eye on khe sahn, and has a great narrator. Excellent work!

Raise you right hand...

Born in 1970, I only know stories of and about the Soldiers of this era.
Their dedication, fortitude,heroism, and bravery, resonates.
Every Mother’s Son (this story) is yet another affirmation of the reason I live in a free Country today.

To K.M. Loftin,

Thank you... For your Service, and for recounting a time that should always be remembered.

I was there, 1967-1968.

HMM-262 was a forgotten squadron during a forgotten time in a forgotten war. Thank you Hippy for remembering it.
