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 with authentic 101st Airborne markings and a metal display stand.
