More > units tested and perfected for medical use the Army's new helicopler, the UH- I (" Huey" Iroquois), and developed several new devices that helped save thousands of American lives between 1962 and 1973, The pilots of these helicopters displayed courage and devotion to duty that earned widespread respect from soldiers.
