Subject: Helicopters in Korea
I am interested in locating detailed information and photographs about helicopters and their crews that served in Korea.
Here are a few books that may help....
Marine Air by Robert Dorr
Chopper by Robert Dorr
US Marine Corps Aviation by Peter B. Mersky
A history of Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 161 by Gary W Parker
They will be a little light on photo's, I am not aware of a good photo book for helo's in the Korean War.
Another one is "Cavalry of the Sky" by Lynn Montross. It was written in 1954 and has a lot of information about VMO-6 and HMR-161, the two combat helicopter squadrons that served in Korea. There is also some good stuff about the early days of Marine Corps helicopter ops with HMX-1. My copy has photos and maps of Korean operations.
You might be able to find a copy in some libraries or used book stores.
I'm looking for info on my late Father Ned D. Scheetz if anyone knew him, he flew helicopters off the U.S.S. Salerno Bay. He is the fourth from left top standing in the image hear, I have several other posts and images on this site, thanks to all you Marines Jeff
Thanks for the information, it will really help lots of people.
