Once, she carried them to war...Strap in, pull pitch, and take your heart for a ride as a restored Vietnam War UH-1H Huey helicopter makes history in a journey across America to hear the untold stories of Vietnam veterans and their families. As she lands in backyards and farmyards "Huey 091" – now in the Smithsonian Museum of American History – becomes a powerful catalyst for emotional healing, reconciliation, and tribute as veterans share, reflect, and demonstrate to the world that one can "hate war, but love the American warrior."


In the Shadow of the Blade features Vietnam War legends like General Hal Moore and combat journalist Joe Galloway, as well as lesser-known heroes like Army Silver Star infantryman James H. Johnson and wounded veteran U.S. Marine Henry Padilla, combat nurse Donna Rowe and "Baby Kathleen," and a host of other remarkable Americans who performed extraordinary feats in a far-away and controversial war. Broadcast on the Discovery Military Channel and winner of numerous awards including Worldfest International Film Festival's "Best of Show" and a Vietnam Veterans of America President's Award, In the Shadow of the Blade explores how courage, loyalty, patriotism and love are enduring forces even in the face of war and its shadowy aftermath. This is one of those documentary films that you'll never forget.
