What is American Huey 369?

American Huey 369 Organization was formed for the specific purpose of Preservation and education of the UH-1 Huey and its impact and History on the Vietnam War.

Our further mission is to pay flying tribute to All Veterans (especially Vietnam Veterans), Gold Star Families, and all Patriots.

We will never forget our Veterans and the Gold Star Families that have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

We are a 501c3 not for profit organization. All proceeds go directly towards restoration and maintenance of both Huey aircrafts and operation of the American Huey 369 museum located in Peru, Indiana.

Why Is American Huey 369 in need of a capital campaign?

American Huey 369 has operated for over 12 years solely on small member contributions and volunteer efforts.

If we are to preserve this great flying legacy we will need to acquire enough funding to build Maintenance facilities, storage hangars and general hangar facilities as well as the property to build them on. In addition, we have plans for control tower facilities and a history center to include library and educational facilities.

Funds raised from this capital campaign will enable us to build a permanent Huey History Museum to educate the public about these great Icons of the Vietnam War for generations to come.

We anticipate the total cost including upkeep to be approximately 3 million dollars and that amount will build the National American Huey History Museum.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check payable to ‘The United States of America’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’

History of American Huey 369

Sharing the Experience of Flight in a Huey

Honoring Veterans

Truly, the American Huey Helicopter is widely recognized as the most powerful symbol of the Vietnam War, and the ICON of all helicopters. Your donation to American Huey 369 makes it possible for us to pay tribute to all veterans, but especially Vietnam Veterans.

Our organization stands for its mission. We provide all veterans and patriots the opportunity to become members in the preservation of these icon Hueys.

Since acquiring our first Huey in 2004, we have put in hundreds of hours of restoration work, and conducted thousands of personal conversations with veterans, their families, and the general public.

In just twelve short years, American Huey 369 Organization has grown to over 13,500 members with over 200 core member volunteers / aircrew nationwide.

How Your Donation Helps Vietnam Veterans and Gold Star Families of the Vietnam War.

Re-experiencing a flight in a Huey aircraft, often can be cathartic event for a Vietnam Veteran. In the Vietnam War, the sound of the Huey meant help was on its way. Experiencing flight and its sound again decades later – often with friends and family members at one’s side – can be a deeply memorable and often healing experience.

American Huey 369 serves as a gathering place for Veterans Reunions and is dedicated to educating school groups, families, patriots for generations to come.

Our organization will fly to special moving Memorial Wall and educational public events of all kinds. To learn more, please contact John Walker for more information.
