Preserving the history of the Huey and Assault Helicopter Units in Vietnam



In Memory of the 37 members of the 135th who, in a controversial war never fully understood, gave the last full measure of devotion to “Get The Bloody Job Done”.

Huey Vets website is dedicated to all Vietnam Vets and our friends who didn’t make it home.


EMU INC. derives its name from the radio call sign of a unique unit in Army aviation history, the 135th Assault Helicopter Company.

The 135th was a typical Vietnam era Assault Helicopter Company with the major exception that it was composed of both U.S. Army and Royal Australian Navy personnel. Because of this unique composition, the 135th was considered an Experimental Military Unit, hence its call sign E.M.U. or EMU.
