The Greyhounds. The shoulder patch of the 240th Assault Helicopter Company's slick platoon - the Greyhounds. In their UH1H helicopters the Greyhounds inserted Leroy Wright's recon team on the morning of May 2, 1968 into enemy controlled territory in Cambodia. Soon the Greyhounds were called to extract the team and they returned to begin a long hard battle that Roy Benavidez called "Six Hours in Hell." Photo: 240th AHC.
