The "Knights of the Air" consisted of four combat ready flight platoons. The White Knights, Red Knights, 114th AHC Logo Cobra's and Lancers who were in operation only in 1966-1967. In addition, there was The Gold Knight "The Commander" and our Blue Knights "Road Service". 

The company was based at Vinh Long Air Field, Republic of South Vietnam from May 1963 to February 1972. During the nine years in Vietnam, the 114th Assault Helicopter Company (AHC) participated in 16 combat campaigns and was presented with 8 unit citations. 

After departing the Republic of South Vietnam in February 1972, the 114th Aviation Company was assigned to the Panama Canal Zone where it served with distinction. The 114th was deactivated at Fort Clayton, Panama Canal Zone in October 1987. 

This site is dedicated to those "KNIGHTS", both Pilots and Crewmen, who did not return home.

This is a video that I shot at Vinh Long Airfield in 1970-71.  Frank Taylor and David Volker are in it at a market. Then a segment of George Loya and someone else loading rockets for the 114th Knights.  I was just trying out a new Super 8 camera. If I had a chance to do it all over, I could do a better job of making movies. The last part of the film is shot going back to the base from downtown Vinh Long.

Agent Orange~

The U.S. military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides on trees and vegetation during the Vietnam War. Several decades later, concerns about the health effects from these chemicals continue. VA offers eligible Veterans a free Agent Orange Registry health exam for possible long-term health problems related to exposure.
