|Caribou was the Army's fixed wing troop transport during the Vietnam war.|
|This small, circular Vietnam Memorial room bears the names of all Army aviators killed in the Vietnam conflict. Interestingly, the museum giftshop sells Army gifts made in Vietnam. Pity.|

|Momentos from the Presidential Helicopter days...|
|All folded up!|
|Shinok CH-47 cargo transport|
|That clear enough for you?|
|You don't want to see this happen --|
