Summary
Sweeping low and fast, U.S. Army pilot Ace Cozzalio flies his OH-6 helicopter as he follows a long canal across the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam. He is searching for his adversaries- the elusive Vietcong. Suddenly, he sees an enemy soldier dive into the water, seeking refuge from the heavily armed helicopter. A maverick by nature, Ace decides to do the unexpected- get out of his aircraft and take a prisoner. Swinging around, he lands next to the canal. After donning his white Stetson cavalry hat, he grabs his trusty cavalry saber and steps into the canal. After several minutes of poking the steely blade into the murky water, he finds the man and takes him prisoner- captured with a cavalry saber! This is only one of many stories of Ace's extraordinary deeds. In Cozzalio's eighteen-month overseas tour, he was shot down by enemy gunfire six times and received every medal of valor with the exception of the Medal of Honor- some multiple times. Ace is a high-speed, low-level flight through the fascinating life of Ace Cozzalio, focusing on his escapades, adventures, and mishaps in the Vietnam War
