Dustoff: Medical Evacuation in the Vietnam War

EBRPL Online Resource, EBRPL Website

Dustoff: Medical Evacuation in the Vietnam War is a  fascinating online exhibit presented by Texas Tech University which documents the history and role of military air ambulances or ‘Dustoff’ crews during the Vietnam War.

You can read about how they came to be, about the incredibly dangerous missions they flew and read about some key personalities.

The exhibit includes photographs, scanned military newsletters and in-depth audio interviews with members of the 57th Medical Detachment unit and others. Transcripts of the interviews are also available. This is an important story and an online exhibit that deserves a visit.
