We are raising this money to help build a hangar for the helicopter shown. We are a local chapter of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilot Association. We are also a 501 (c) (3) organization so your donations are tax deductible. We recently lost our hanger space and now are storing it outside. The weather takes a toll on the condition of the aircraft and it is difficult to perform maintenance. We are trying to begin construction as soon as possible. We have the space to build it and are anxious to begin. This helicopter is taken to veterans organization celebrations, local schools and other worthy causes. We think it is important to educate the Children on the Vietnam War and the history of the "Huey" that made Vietnam the "Helicopter War"
