    MAJ J. D. Coleman (1930-2005) worked with the 1st Cavalry Division’s contributing authors to compile the original edition of Air Cav. Author of Pleiku, Incursion, and WONJU: The Gettysburg of the Korean War, MAJ Coleman served in the U.S. Army from 1948 to 1952 and from 1963 to 1979. He was an Airborne Infantryman in the 187th Regimental Combat Team in the Korean War and PIO with the First Cavalry Division in Vietnam. He continued serving as PIO at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and Fort Ord, California, and later as Chief of Command Information at Fort McPherson, Georgia. He retired as a Lt. Col. in 1979.
    Air Cav: History of the 1st Cavalry Division in Vietnam 1965-1969 is the story of the small, close world of fighting men in action. This volume can be many things to many people a book of memories, a souvenir, a pictorial essay on airmobility, or simply a story of gallant men at war. It can be many things, but one thing it is not, nor does it pretend to be a complete history of the 1st Air Cavalry Division in Vietnam.

    The task and burden of history must lie with the objectivity of future generations, far removed from current pressures and restraints. It is true, of course, that much research for this book has been done from available official records, the ultimate source of written history. But even more has been drawn from the vivid recollections of the Cavalrymen who fought, tasted the brassy bile of fear, shared the fierce exultation of victory, or were drenched in the dark despair of death.

    This volume contains the memoirs of a fighting team the FIRST TEAM. It is a memory
