I just didn't want to look in the mirror later and say I didn't handle it. You always go for your brothers - they are family.

In honor of the Veterans of the Vietnam War, we’d like to pay special homage to Major Bruce Crandall who performed legendary actions of bravery during the infamous battle in the Ia Drang Valley. On November 14, 1965, as his helicopter landed with seven others to discharge troops into battle, the enemy volley was so intense that the U.S. ground commander ordered the second flight of aircraft to abort their mission.

Despite this, Major Crandall commenced to fly to and from the battle multiple times to bring ammunition and evacuate wounded soldiers. By the end of the first day, he flew 22 flights providing life-saving equipment and boosting the morale of the troops in battle.

Major Crandall’s story would be retold hundreds of times and made famous in the motion picture, “We Were Soldiers.” Join us in raising a glass to all the Vietnam Veterans who displayed heroic actions throughout the war.
