"KING" is a fascinating story of a career Air Force officer whose personal goals are motivated by greed and ambition to overcome financial distress and to achieve professional success. A personal choice designed to escape or minimize divorce economics and to secure a much sought after computer school assignment. This (less than rational) decision takes him from the 1254th MAW, a most prestigious assignment (home of Air Force One), to the rice paddies of Vietnam. A self-engineered assignment and subsequent odyssey that began as a means to an end where personal satisfaction became a paramount factor in the overall assignment equation. If the truth be known, a decision generated by self-serving goals and fueled by tainted motivation.greed coupled with a wee bit of lunacy and a dab of patriotism. While en route to Vietnam and the war zone that awaits him, he mentally questions the rationale of this (probable) idiotic choice. In so doing, he bares his soul to justify his decision to volunteer for a most unpopular Vietnam assignment. Unpredictable, personal experiences during the ensuing twelve months produced an unimaginable degree of job satisfaction. This could only be characterized as the 'top of the tree' vice the 'bottom of the barrel.' The result of which effected a personal humility of purpose. Of the more than 3000 recorded 'Saves' during the Vietnam War, "KING" is a mix of such personal accounts as well as the light and oft times wacky side of life played out at the expense of others. "KING" is a compilation of events and personal experiences which reflect a different aspect of the Vietnam conflict. As such, it does not diminish the honor or sacrifices made by the living and deceased Vietnam veterans. Instead, "KING" pays homage in both a serious and humorous way to the warriors and a war long ago fought in a far away land called Vietnam.

When the Korean War began in June 1950, the United States Air Force's Air Rescue Service was a fledgling organization possessing a variety of aircraft types, most having seen service during World War II. The concept of using helicopters and amphibious fixed-wing aircraft to rescue airmen downed behind enemy lines or in hostile waters had gained little consideration by the Air Force and was largely unproven. But by the fall of 1950, the 3d Air Rescue Squadron had begun to write a new chapter in the history of air power, and by July 1953, when the armistice was signed in Korea, air rescue had become established as an integral part of U.S. fighting forces. Although the H-5 and H-19 helicopters and SA-16 amphibians gained attention worldwide by virtue of countless daring rescues performed throughout the war, lesser known aircraft such as the L-5, SC-47, SB-17, and SB-29 also played important roles in building the U.S. Air Force's overall air rescue capability in the Korean War theater.
