Vietnam Studies- Medical Support 1965-1970: Aviation Medicine (3152 words)
By the end of 1966, aviators were flying 100 to 150 hours or more per month, and the need to know how much an aviator could fly before, he was so fatigued that he was no longer effective or safe was evident.
His recommendation was "that immediate action be taken to provide additional aviators to USARV insuring at least 100 percent authorized aviator strength to reduce the degree to which pilot fatigue is contributing to the loss of lives and expensive aircraft." This was never done.
The continuous presence of the aviation unit flight surgeon with constant emphasis on preventive medicine techniques and health education for the aviator undoubtedly contributed to the low incidence.
Casper Aviation Platoon (388 words)
It was later shortened to "Casper" in 1965.
Casper Aviation Platoon was the only separate aviation platoon in the United States Army during the Vietnam War.
Casper was organized with the 173d Airborne Brigade on Okinawa in 1963 and arrived in country with the Brigade on May 5, 1965 becoming the first U.S. Army ground unit committed to the Vietnam War.
