Undaunted Valor Book Series Trailer

Gary Bridges (AKA Matt Jackson), A/227AHB, 1969-1970, has written a three book series about his Vietnam experience flying with the 227th Assault Helicopter Battalion. His first book: “Undaunted Valor: An Assault Helicopter Unit in Vietnam” details daily events and missions with A/227. His second book: “Undaunted Valor: Medal of Honor” includes information about the 1970-1971 actions of the unit as the 227th units were reassigned when the 1CAV returned home to the US. His third book will be available in November: “Undaunted Valor: Lam Son 719” covers the actions by numerous units as they supported Vietnamese units in action in Laos, with details about the actions by D/227.

All of these books are well researched and give an accurate account of the events and actions of flying for the 227th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division during Vietnam.

All of these books are available now on Amazon (softcover or kindle).
