Never destined to win a beauty pageant, the Choctaw’s good looks were always in the eyes of the beholder. And in the Sikorsky UH-34, the Marines found their girl. Affectionately called the “Huss,” the Choctaw went ashore as part of the first Marine aircraft unit in the Republic of Vietnam in 1962 and served in country until April, 1969. Here a pair of UH-34’s ply the skies over South Vietnam on an assault support mission ferrying troops and supplies.
