Jim Falk ©Stars and StripesSouth Vietnam, September, 1969: Wearing red-tinted goggles to keep their eyes conditioned for night flying, pilots from Light Helicopter Attack Squadron 3 relax aboard a yard repair, berthing and messing craft anchored on the Hau Giang River, 110 miles west of Saigon. The Seawolves had been lending aerial fire support to U.S. and Vietnamese naval forces in the Mekong Delta area and the Rung Sat Special Zone since April, 1967.
