Dear Mom, I’m Alive: Letters Home From Blackwidow 25


One out of every three American helicopter pilots never returned from the bloody chaos of Vietnam. Randy Mains beat the odds.

For a full year he endured gross incompetence in the chain of command, top-secret excursions into neutral Laos, routine recovery missions that would turn suddenly, unexpectedly into life-threatening nightmares. One thousand hours spent flying into the perilous heart of a terrifying jungle inferno.

In the wild, unruly fraternity of combat flyers he learned the meaning of courage and camaraderie… and experienced the gut-wrenching pain of personal loss. But most important, he survived to tell his own unforgettable story of the real war Mom never knew about.
