While on a combat mission near Can Tho, Republic of Vietnam, on 9 November 1967, the door gunner of an armed U.S. Navy Bell HH-1K Huey Helicopter Attack Squadron (Light) 3 (HA(L)-3 Seawolves, Detachment 7, gun at the ready, scans the rice paddies below him for signs of the enemy movement. Another Huey hovers over the river banks to assist in patrol operations by the Navy’s River Patrol Boats. The only squadron of its kind, HA(L)-3 was established to specifically meet the tactical requirements of riverine warfare during the Vietnam War.
