A Bell UH-1 helicopter was on display at the Wilkes Heritage Museum in Wilkesboro, N.C., over the weekend thanks to the North Carolina Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association and Roger Smithey, a Vietnam veteran. "I'm trying to start something with Old Wilkes for veterans and for young people, allowing the museum to tell our story. We want to continue with this initiative so that our story, and the sacrifices, won't be forgotten," said Smithey.
