Description
Produced by the Air Force during the Vietnam War, this narrated documentary details the extremely hazardous duty of the 5-man air rescue teams, whose job it was to bring out downed pilots. Includes excellent live-action footage aboard HH-53s (super jolly greens) of actual rescues, as well as details outlining the specific role of each team member-the pilot, co-pilot, navigator (door gunner) and the para-rescue jumpers, called "PJs." Also included are two short silent films detailing some of the activities of Det 2, 38th Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron (AARS) in HH-43As and the activities of Det 6, 38th ARRS alert crews during scramb1es to HH-43Fs and at scene of helicopter crash in Vietnam jungle.

Description
The "War Dogs, America's Forgotten Heroes" documentary, which was seen on the Discovery Channel, was produced to educate America about the war dogs and the pivotal role they played in the Vietnam War. It tells the heart-wrenching story of the bond between the dogs and their handlers and the great lengths they each took to save one another from the tragedies of war. It also recounts less than 200 of these valiant dogs returned to America at the close of the war, and how none of them were honored.
