The helicopter is part of the upcoming 1968 exhibit at the museum in Denver. Vietnam veteran Neil Stanley was a medic on a med-vac helicopter in Vietnam from 1967 to 1969. He told KGNU’s Dave Ashton that many Vietnam veterans received a lot of unfriendly behavior when they returned from Vietnam to a society that rejected the war. Stanley says the exhibit should go a long way to educate the public on many different aspects of society in 1968.
