Overview

Between 1965 and 1973 Strategic Air Command B-52 gunners flew an unprecedented number of combat hours in the Vietnam War. Gunners with three and four hundred missions were not uncommon. Most did their job with bravery and uncommon valor during a time when arrays of SAM missiles were being launched at them from sites in North Vietnam. At times some of them got a little rowdy, and their antics often surprised and perplexed the "zeroes," the officers they flew with. This exciting and sometimes hilarious story about them closely resembles the truth.
