In route to Vietnam in the summer of 1970, Captain Johnny McKay kept hearing his father’s words in his head, Make them a good soldier, son.
Every soldier onboard that flight had one goal in common – come back alive.
Captain McKay soon finds himself immersed in a war zone with a few good men and very difficult circumstances. Maintaining an aviation battalion when you’re taking fire daily is no easy task and many will lose their lives.

This is the story of untested men working together under diverse and difficult circumstances to be the best that they can be.
