227th Assault Helicopter Battalion Veterans
The Original Air Assault Battalion.
The 227th was constituted in 1963 as part of the 11th Air Assault which developed the air assault concept for the Army. In 1965 the 227th was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division and sent to Vietnam to continue the air assault concept development under combat conditions.
We are Vietnam combat veterans having our reunion jointly with the AAAA.
