Publisher Comments:

The true-to-life story of a Ranger who volunteered to serve on a Blue Team in the Air Cavalry, racing to the aid of soldiers who faced the same dangers he had barely survived in the jungles of Vietnam. Whether enduring NVA sniper attacks, surviving "friendly" fire, or landing in hot LZs, Jorgenson discovered that in Vietnam you never knew whether you were paranoid or just painfully aware of the possibilities.

After watching most of his buddies die in a firefight when his LRRP team was overrun by the NVA, Jorgenson volunteered to serve on a Blue Team in the Air Cavalry--under intense enemy fire--racing to aid fliers downed and down for the count. Jorgenson survived 54 missions as point man in just 10 months in Vietnam.
