Apocalypse Now


In 1979 the Movie “Apocalypse Now” was released, featuring 1st Squadron 9th Cavalry, 1st Air Cavalry Division.

In the summer of 1979 while grocery shopping in my home town of Carroll, Iowa this Life magazine caught my eye. I bought it and hurried home, so I could read about the movie “Apocalypse Now” which was to be released August 15th of that year.

I made a two hour trip to Omaha when it started showing in some of the larger Midwest movie theaters. Watching it stirred up vivid memories of my thirteen months in Vietnam with Charlie Troop 1/9th
