    UH-1E Huey, B Troop, 2nd Sqdn., 17th Cavalry, 101st Airborne Division Sp4 Joseph G. LaPointe - June 2, 1969 (1:48) by Air Force 1 Diecast
    Item Number: AF1-0151

    A striking reproduction of a UH-1H Huey, this 1/48 scale, die cast model ��� a newly tooled release from Air Force 1 Model Company ��� proudly pays tribute to a hero of the Vietnam War!

    On June 2, 1969, medic Joseph LaPointe volunteered for a mission near the infamous Hamburger Hill battle site. Shortly after being dropped at the landing zone in a UH-1H Huey, two men in his unit were wounded and demobilized. In the face of heavy enemy fire, SP4 LaPointe risked his own life by crawling to his fallen brothers, shielding them and sustaining his own wounds while offering assistance. Moments later, a grenade killed all three men. LaPointe was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor and the chopper in which he flew ("17573"), displayed at the Vietnam War Museum in Saigon, is reproduced here with authentic 101st Airborne markings and a metal display stand.
