An outbound seek-and-destroy Huey-slick mission is flown by a ten-ship formation of the 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Division, almost immediately after the unit first arrived in South Vietnam during the monsoon season. With the rotors beating their unforgettable thunderous 'whoop', the Huey's fly down a mist-shrouded valley and over the Cao Dai Monastery at An Khe. On 14 November, this famous Regiment fought the US Army's first major battle against the North Vietnamese Army in the Ia Drang Valley in one of the bloodiest and fiercest actions of the entire war.
