The 191st Assault Helicopter Company, although younger than many assault companies in Vietnam, is fast becoming one of the best known and respected in its area of operations. Itís assigned aviators are young but quickly learn to function effectively as part of a combat assault team. In the first thirteen months of the companyís operational history it has flown over thirty-seven thousand hours and spent nearly three hundred days conducting combat assaults. Each aircraft has an orange boomerang painted on the nose section and just as the name implies, the 191st "Boomerangs" always come back.
