Description

2006 printing of a book that was originally published in 1982. This book chronicles the early problems of medical evacuation in Vietnam, recounts the valor of several of the Dust Off crews, and describes the procedures and equipment used to speed the movement of patients to in-theater Army hospitals. Includes a bibliography and an index.

This book also shows the effect that the helicopter had on traditional Army procedures dating back to the Civil War.  It should interest anyone concerned with Army medical history, the Vietnam War, or the problem of administering medical care in war or in times of civilian disasters.  The widespread use of the helicopter for medical evacuation in America since the Vietnam War testifies to the broader issues raised by this study, and the relevance of Army history to the civilian community.  Includes a bibliography and an index.

Audience

Military members and veterans, especially those who served in Dust Off crews, as well as historians and students of military history, and those with an interest in the Vietnam War will enjoy this publication.
