American Medevac – Battlefield Rescue

During the Vietnam War, CBS News correspondent Morton Dean and cameraman Greg Cooke flew on a harrowing medevac mission to rescue three wounded infantrymen from an enemy infested rice paddy. Dean long wondered what had become of the medevac crew and the bloodied men who were airlifted to safety on that day in 1971. American Medevac tells the story of their reunion, more than 40 years later.

Join us for a one of a kind Modern US Army field hospital exhibit and a showing of American Medevac with special guest Morton Dean on Veterans Day, November 11.
