14th Combat Aviation Battalion
A pictoral History

(Produced late in 1967)

Click on the blue button-- --to go directly to the CONTENTS now.

In November and December 1967, a "photo album" was produced by the 14th Combat Aviation Battalion (CAB). The book was actually printed in early 1968, but all photos were complete by the end of 1967. Within the book are sections for:

14th Battalion Headquarters






"C" Troop, 7th Squadron, 17th Air Cavalry -- RUTHLESS RIDERS

Below is the cover of the book (more narrative and CONTENTS are below the photo).

Click on the Blue Cube for an enlargement of the
above photograph. Click "Back" to return to here.

The book has unit writeups and photos for each unit within the battalion. Here I've reproduced some of the pages of the battalion section (but not all), and I've reproduced ALL of the pages pertaining to the 174th AHC.

Each photo will have a "blue cube" below it. If you wish to see the photo enlarged, click on the blue cube and it will be enlarged considerably. You may have to scroll left-and-right and up-and-down to see all the image. By clicking the "back" button on the top of your browser while viewing the enlarged photo, you'll be returned to the page with the smaller photo.

Below I'll list the page numbers in the order I scanned them (the pages in the book are unnumbered), and I'll provide a short description of what's on that page. On this page, I'll include all the 14th CAB pages that I scanned, then I'll provide another page for the 174th photos. Click on the page number to view the page.

WEBMASTER NOTE: This book was printed either in Korea or Japan by "English-as-a-second-language" printers. There are a significant number of mistakes in spelling, grammar, and identification of people. Quite a few names throughout the book are misspelled and in some cases entire groups of people are misidentified (as luck would have it, the photo I am in was totally misidentified with other people's names). If anyone viewing this sees other mistakes, please let me know and I'll make note of the error in the photo caption. --Jim McD.

In any event, It is a part of our history. Enjoy it for what it is...
